BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A Buffalo man could spend up to 25 years in prison if he’s convicted of shooting two people on the city’s west side.

Prosecutors say Edwin Calo-Montanez, 32, shot the victims with an illegal gun on West Avenue near Vermont Street this past Wednesday night. They were taken to ECMC after suffering serious injuries.
