Man who shot teens convicted of second degree murder


BUFFALO, N.Y. -- A jury decided unanimously on Thursday afternoon that Joseph Gant is guilty of both second-degree murder and attempted murder.

Last August, Gant got involved in a fight on the city's East Side near a footbridge that crosses the 33. He pulled out a gun and fired indiscriminately toward a large group of teenagers and young adults who had been standing around to see the fight.

Gant killed a 14-year-old boy, injured his 13-year-old brother, and injured two other teenagers.

"One of those people was the defendant," said ADA Colleen Curtin Gable. "People who came forward were asked to look at the video of the fight and tell police in the early stages of the investigation if they recognized anyone from it, and several people pointed to the person in the Adidas jacket...and said 'That's the shooter, i don't know who he is, but that's the shooter.'"

Visa Issues Continue as Experts Try to Restore System

 

As we reported last week, the Bureau of Consular Affairs continues to face technological issues with its visa systems. The Department of State (DOS) posted a statement yesterday that it endeavors to have the system fully reconnected this week. As of noon yesterday, 22 posts around the world have been reconnected. This represents approximately half of the global nonimmigrant visa volume. 

The agency stated that it has made good progress as it processes the large backlog of cases created by the system shutdown. Some posts were able to handle visa interviews as well as some visa printing by the end of last week. Several posts have also begun rescheduling visa appointments.
