Buffalo teen indicted for murder in Broadway-Fillmore neighborhood

Buffalo

(WIVB) — A Buffalo teen was arraigned Thursday afternoon on second-degree murder and first-degree robbery charges before an Erie County Court Judge.

District Attorney John Flynn says the 16-year-old boy is accused of conspiring with an adult to rob 20-year-old Trenton Jacob Sink of Lockport by luring him to C Street in the Queen City.

The 16-year-old and the adult allegedly robbed Sink of his backpack at 8:13 p.m. on March 29.

Flynn’s office says during the robbery, Sink was allegedly shot multiple times in the chest, leg, and side of his body and died from his injuries at ECMC.

According to the DA, the 16-year-old is due back in court on August 30 at 9:30 a.m.

The 16-year-old will remain in jail until the court appearance, and DA Flynn says the adult, whose name officials are not releasing at this time, is wanted on an indictment warrant.
