Police have identified the victim in the shooting that took place Saturday at the intersection of Pine and Genesee streets as a Buffalo man.
Kevon L. Sykes, 23, was shot as he ran away from a perpetrator after a verbal exchange at approximately 5:55 p.m., police reports said. Earlier reports indicated a group of four men were arguing and shots were fired.
Sykes was originally taken to Eastern Niagara Hospital before being transferred to ECMC to be treated for non-life threatening injuries. He was released from ECMC on Saturday.
LPD’s crime scene unit collected forensic and ballistic evidence from the crime scene and the department is continuing the investigation.
