Buffalo Tragedy: 14-Year-Old Girl Killed in Mass Shooting

Buffalo, New York – A tragic incident unfolded in Buffalo late Saturday night, as a mass shooting resulted in the death of a 14-year-old girl and injuries to five other teenagers between the ages of 14 and 16. The shooting took place in a parking lot behind the Neighborhood Housing Services of South Buffalo on Alexander Place, where chaos erupted following an initial call to the police for noise complaints and reports of a fight at a large house party.

Following the disturbance, law enforcement officers responded to a call of shots fired in the area, with reports of a person being shot shortly after. The female victim was rushed to Oishei Children’s Hospital but tragically succumbed to her injuries. Described as outgoing and talented, she was a student at a local charter school.

In the aftermath of the shooting, a 15-year-old boy and three other males were transported to ECMC. The 15-year-old remains in critical condition, while a 16-year-old boy sustained a minor injury and declined treatment at the scene. As of Sunday afternoon, the perpetrator responsible for the senseless act has not been apprehended, prompting Mayor Byron Brown and Buffalo Police to issue a strong message for the individual still at large.

Both the Mayor and law enforcement officials urged the shooter to come forward, emphasizing the gravity of the situation and the necessity for accountability. Despite the community’s grief and the outpouring of support for the victim’s family, there is a palpable fear among residents due to the shooter’s continued freedom.
