Buffalo Double Shooting @ Burgard Place & Genesee St.
Why do there continue to be shootings in the inner city ... a phrase you hardly hear anymore, however, the reality is that the Inner-City is still real. I use that term in comparison to the "suburbs"...another phrase that has disappeared. Inner-City has been replaced with the label "Community", while the suburbs are referred to now by only their specific, identifiable, and prestigious sounding names...or separately deemed a part of Erie County rather than "The City of Buffalo".
It's far beyond a coincidence that there are far more shootings and there is far more gun violence in the Inner-City than there is in the "suburbs"...but why? The million dollar question.
Two men are in stable condition at Erie County Medical Center after a shooting Friday night. It happened around 9 p.m. near Genesee Street and Burgard Place. Police say the victims were a 28-year-old man and 29-year-old man. Buffalo Police said Sunday that they have been treated and released. Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call or text the Buffalo Police confidential tip line at (716) 847-2255.
