While the victims were expected to make a quick recovery initially, one young lady is still fighting for her life. Leticia Hargrave-Berry, a college student at Canisius, is still in intensive care. The 19-year-old had just begun her college studies in August of 2022 after graduating from Western New York Maritime Charter School in June. Her parents, Teresa Berry and Lloyd Hargrave, have started a GoFundMe to help cover life-saving care for their beloved daughter.
As a result of gun violence, Leticia has suffered a traumatic brain injury, facial fractures, and paralysis on her left side. Leticia is currently in Medical ICU with no possibility of coming home due to being dependent on a ventilator. Her doctors are recommending that she goes to a facility that provides vent and tracheostomy care. However, Leticia's medical insurance will not cover the cost of the 24-hour nursing care she needs.
Unfortunately, the shooter has not been caught yet. If you have any information that can help police bring justice for Letitia and the other victims, please call or text the Buffalo Police Department's confidential TIPCALL line at 716-847-2255.
