Tragedy Strikes Buffalo: 14-Year-Old Girl Killed, 5 Other Teens Injured in Senseless Shooting on Jefferson Avenue

A devastating shooting incident occurred on Saturday night in Buffalo, New York, leaving a 14-year-old girl dead and five other teenagers injured. The shooting took place in a parking lot on Jefferson Avenue, near Alexander Place, around 11:30 p.m.

According to Buffalo police, six teenagers between 14 and 16 years old were shot. The 14-year-old girl was rushed to Oishei Children’s Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Four males were taken to ECMC by ambulance, with a 15-year-old boy in critical condition and the others in stable condition.

A 16-year-old boy was grazed by gunfire but declined medical treatment at the scene. The police reported that hundreds of teenagers were in the area for a large house party, which led to a fight and eventually the shooting.

The police received an initial loud music call around 10:20 p.m., followed by a fight call around 10:30 p.m. The crowd was dispersed within 30 minutes, but a shots fired call was made at 11:10 p.m., followed by calls for a person shot shortly after.

Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown condemned the shooting, calling it a “senseless crime” that “makes no sense whatsoever.” The police believe three handguns were present at the party and are investigating the incident.

The community is in shock and mourning the loss of a young life. The police are urging anyone with information to come forward and call or text the confidential TIPCALL line at 716-847-2255.

The investigation is ongoing, and the police are working to piece together the events leading up to the shooting. The community is coming together to support the families affected by this tragedy.

This senseless act of violence has left a scar on the community, and it is essential to work together to prevent such incidents in the future. The police and community leaders are urging for anyone with information to come forward and help bring justice to the victims and their families.
