Two separate shootings overnight in Buffalo left one man dead and another in the hospital in serious condition, Buffalo police said Friday morning.
The first incident was reported at 9:46 p.m. Thursday at an apartment at 72 Stevenson St. in South Buffalo. Police responding to a report of a shooting found a 37-year-old man shot at the address. He was taken to Mercy Hospital where he died of his injuries, Buffalo police said.
A 15-year-old boy, whose name has not been released because of his age, was arrested and charged in the homicide. Police said the shooting “appears to be domestic in nature.”
The boy was arraigned before Buffalo City Court Chief Judge Craig D. Hannah on one count of second-degree murder. The case will proceed before Youth Part Judge Kevin M. Carter, according to the Erie County District Attorney’s office. The boy was remanded to the custody of the East Ferry Detention Facility.
The second shooting took place about 12:16 a.m. outside the Hair U Wear shop at 2881 Bailey Ave.
The victim in that shooting was a 36-year-old man. He was taken to Erie County Medical Center in a private vehicle. He was listed in serious condition Friday.
Police said the shooting occurred outside the store and that the gunman may have fired from a vehicle.
