Shooting near Buffalo school prompts 'lock out'


BUFFALO, NY - A shooting that happened near a school in the Queen City caused school officials to take emergency safety precautions.

The Buffalo Academy for the Visual and Performing Arts was placed into a "lock out" mode. That means no one was allowed in or out until the all clear was given.

Classes went on as usual.

Police say a man was shot in the leg on Utica near Main, but the victim ran to Glenwood which is near that school. He is expected to recover.

Workers rally for minimum wage hike


Some Western New Yorkers took Tax Day as an opportunity to highlight another economic issue: underpaid workers.

A march at Main and Bailey on Wednesday was one of dozens across the country calling for a $15 minimum wage.

Many of the marchers were fast-food employees who walked off the job saying companies need to pay people enough so that they can be above the poverty line.

They say a clear sign of the issue is McDonalds' announcement earlier this month that it would raise wages a dollar, for a small fraction of its workers."We want something more than just a pat on the back, you know? Because we're making you like a thousand dollars an hour and we're only getting eight," said Kahlil Chambers at Wednesday's rally. "It's kinda like wow, you know? It's not nothing, a couple more dollars. It won't affect them, but it will affect us a lot."
