    Makes me wonder where this country has gone. :( never had to worry about this a long time ago. Sad to hear. Sadly, the justice system is so fucked up these days that the bastard that killed/wounded these innocent people might get out of the slammer in 20 years. :frusty:

    BUFFALO, N.Y. – Eight people leaving a party at a downtown Buffalo restaurant were shot early Saturday, four of them fatally, including a Texas man who had returned to his hometown to celebrate his first wedding anniversary, police said.
    Managers had decided to close the City Grill in the city's business district after an altercation inside. The victims were leaving at about 2:30 a.m. when a man who had been inside began shooting, police said.
    "There were verbal things going on. Management apparently chose to close down and have everybody leave the restaurant," Chief of Detectives Dennis Richards said. "People were leaving when this shooting happened."
    Keith Johnson, 25, of Buffalo was charged Saturday afternoon with four counts of second-degree murder and could face more charges. Johnson was in custody late Saturday afternoon and unavailable for comment.
    Police didn't know whether Johnson was involved in the earlier altercation and asked witnesses to speak up.
    "We need people to come forward," said Police Commissioner Daniel Derenda, who estimated there were 100 people at the scene when police arrived.
    The group was attending a party in advance of a more formal anniversary celebration scheduled for later Saturday, authorities said. The couple, Danyell Mackin, 30, and his wife, Tanisha, married in Texas a year ago and had returned to celebrate with Buffalo-area friends and family, authorities said. Tanisha Mackin was not hurt.

    Charges may be dropped in homicide

    Wrong man arrested?

    Buffalo, N.Y. (WIVB) - Authorities very close to the investigation say a prosecutor with the Erie County District Attorney's office is expected to appear in Buffalo City Court Sunday morning.

    News 4 Buffalo's Senior Correspondent Rich Newberg has learned that the hearing will be held to drop the charges against Keith Johnson. Johnson was arrested on Saturday afternoon and charged with 4 counts of 2nd degree murder for a deadly shooting at City Grille restaurant in downtown Buffalo early Saturday morning. 4 were killed and 4 more injured critically.
    Newberg has learned that evidence from the surveillance cameras may have exonerated Johnson.
    New developments in the case surfaced late Saturday night, and the District Attorney's office is reevaluating the arrest of Johnson.
