Buffalo

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Groove Lounge has been ordered to shut down after two people were shot.

Police say they observed shots being fired in the parking lot of The Groove Lounge early Saturday morning around 12:15.

Detectives say a 32-year-old Buffalo woman and a 29-year-old man with multiple addresses were struck by gunfire. They were found in the Autozone parking lot across the street before they were transported by ambulance to ECMC.

The woman is in stable condition, according to police.

At the time of the shooting, police say there were hundreds of people in the parking lot. They say the scene was so disorderly that officers from two police districts had to respond.

Security for The Groove Lounge did not cooperate with Buffalo police, they say.

Police ask anyone with information to call or text their confidential tip line at 716-847-2255.
