Police Investigate Theft at a Buffalo Church

BUFFALO, NY - Buffalo Police are trying to track down the person who stole a woman's wallet during mass at a well known church on the east side.

"It seems to be an ongoing situation here on the east side for all of the faith based organizations," Father Joe Moreno told us. "These are desperate times, people are hurting, and they feel they can just target the churches."

Former Catholic Church Neglected

BUFFALO, NY -- Recently, a 2 On Your Side viewer called our Tipline asking us to find out why a former Catholic Church has been neglected to the point that it's now being called an eyesore.  

Some who live near it also agree.

The former Saint Matthew's Roman Catholic Church at the corner of East Ferry and Moselle streets closed its doors almost 20 years ago, and hasn't been used since. The last time a Catholic mass took place at this church was back on March 3, 1993.

Today, trash now covers most of the property. Stained glass windows that were once admired are gone. Broken and boarded up windows in their place.

David Torke told 2 On Your Side, "It's really sickening. It's tragic that our cultural resources are being left out here in the cold, literally, and there's a pattern of this sort of disinvestment in the neighborhood."

Bullet Hits NFTA Bus

BUFFALO, NY - Passengers in one NFTA bus had a scary ride Saturday night when a bullet came flying through the window.

Officials from the NFTA say a man boarded the metro bus that was stopped at Bailey and Kensington.  They say he engaged in a verbal confrontation with an unknown male who was sitting in the center passenger seat.

They say this same male then got off the bus and fired one shot from a gun towards the bus.  The bullet hit a window frame, but it did not penetrate the frame.

The shooter fled the scene on foot heading southbound on Bailey Avenue. The person who was apparently shot at exited the scene on foot.
