Buffalonian, Rachel Garrison, is pictured in the Buffalo News celebrating Mother’s Day the following day, confident that the shooting was an isolated incident and not worried about anything happening to her family.  She suggested that the shooting may have been “gang related” and that she and her family are not apart of that culture and she wasn’t worried because she doesn’t bother anyone.
