Shooting.

 

On Tuesday, March 10th, the Police Advisory Board (PAB) will host a public event

with Black Love Resists in the Rust (BLRR) to address the Buffalo police-involved

shooting that occurred on December 29th, 2019. During a traffic stop at the

intersection of Lonsdale and Northland, a 30 year old man was shot by a Buffalo

Police Officer. BLRR has been actively working with residents who were impacted

by this shooting and seeks to start a conversation with Council Members, Police, and

the community. This is an opportunity for the family of the shooting victim and

Buffalo residents to voice concerns to the members of the Common Council on

policing and community-police relations in the City of Buffalo. The PAB has

previously hosted community forums and shared concerns and policy

recommendations with the Common Council and the Buffalo Police Department at

the Police Oversight Committee Meetings of the Common Council.
