What Happened That Resulted In The Buffalo Police Shooting Of A Buffalo Man?

Around 10 am on Saturday, February 24, 2024, Buffalo Police Officers were called to Buffalo's Johnson neighborhood in response to calls about a man having a gun. When officers arrived on the scene, they encountered a 58-year-old man, who was later identified as Edward Holmes, on Reed Street, near Sycamore.

According to the Buffalo Police Department, Holmes was brandishing a 12-gauge shotgun. The reports from the BPD go on to say that Holmes was ordered to drop the shotgun multiple times. He allegedly fired one round from the shotgun before two officers opened fire on him.

Members of Holmes' family say that he was not an aggressive person by any means and that there is more to this story.

One witness report said that BPD officers fired at least 17 rounds at Holmes. Another report says that the shots from Buffalo Police officers rang out in less than 30 seconds from when they arrived on the scene.

As with all police shootings in New York, State Attorney General Letitia James will also open an investigation into this shooting.
