BUFFALO, NY - Emotions ran high in Buffalo City Court Thursday as the family of an NFTA bus driver showed up in court at the arraignment of the man who is accused of shooting him.
Buffalo Police arrested Joshua J. Mitchell, 24, of Buffalo, in connection with the shooting death of Brian G. Chapman Jr.
Chapman was shot on the front porch of his residence in the 300 block of Guilford Street just before 5:00 a.m. Wednesday morning. He was rushed to Erie County Medical Center, but died as a result of his injuries. He was apparently on his porch awaiting a ride to work when he was shot.
Mitchell was charged with murder and two felony weapons counts, including a charge for having been previously convicted of a crime, in 2007.
