Buffalo man gets 20 years in prison for shooting on Wyoming Avenue

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A Buffalo man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison after shooting another man on Wyoming Ave.

Last year, in September, Buffalo police responded to a report of a shooting on that street.

While they were headed there, they were notified that the shooting victim drove himself to ECMC. He was treated for gunshot wounds to his abdomen and left wrist.

Shortly after the shooting, police received another call about a shooting victim at Thatcher Ave., about a mile away from the scene of the shooting on Wyoming Ave.

There, Sandy Jones, 34, was found sitting on the front porch of a home, bleeding from a gunshot wound to the stomach.

Jones insisted that he had been shot in the vicinity of Thatcher Ave. He was taken to ECMC to be treated.

The victim of the Wyoming Ave. shooting told authorities he was coming home from a grocery store when Jones approached his vehicle with a gun in each hand.

When the victim pulled one of the guns away, Jones shot him with the other gun.

With the gun he pulled away, the victim returned fire, hitting Jones.

Jones fled the scene, and the victim drove himself to the hospital.

In October of 2018, Jones was found guilty of assault and criminal possession of a weapon.

Jones, a second violent felony offender, was also sentenced to five years of post-release supervision along with time in prison.
