Buffalo Man Found Not Guilty of Attempted Murder, Assault, Gun Possession
Back in June of 2022, an unfortunate event occurred on the first block of Decker St. in the City of Buffalo. According to WGRZ NBC2 in Buffalo, officers responded to the call around 3:45 p.m. to find a 32-year-old man and his two-year-old daughter shot. Each would be hospitalized due to the injuries sustained in the shooting.
At the time, investigations were underway, and anyone with information was asked to call the confidential tip line.
Buffalo Police commissioner Joe Gramaglia said in a news conference,
"The father and the daughter were innocent victims. In this case, they were shot through a fence," Buffalo Police commissioner Joe Gramaglia said Wednesday during a news conference. "So clearly, there's really not a lot that they could have seen when you're on the other side of a fence.
“But here we are another child in the City of Buffalo that's been shot, and we need some justice for this. You've got people that are firing weapons, randomly firing weapons, and you look at the results of what can happen there."

When you are charged with a crime of this magnitude, it's vital to retain an attorney with trial experience and the ability to fight for your justice. If you decide to base your choice of courtroom representation on cost, or choose to retain a public defender, you may end up with a decision from the judge that could have been avoided with a more seasoned attorney.
