Man accused of shooting, killing 70-year-old

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A 20-year-old Buffalo man is charged with murder in the March shooting death of a man from C Street.

Monday morning, a State Supreme Court justice arraigned Andre Johnson on murder and robbery charges for the death of 70-year-old Robert Bennett.

Bennett’s body was discovered on March 29 inside his home, where family members say his wallet and cell phone were missing.

His nephew, Keith Pitner, said, “A monster came in here and a shot a 70-year-old man in the face, sitting right on his couch in his own home.”

“You know this is not some bad drug deal gone bad or something. This is a man that fought for this country, that loved the people that he lived around, and the way I see it, the same people that he loved and fought for and to be able to have the freedom in this country killed him.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
