BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A man is dead after being gunned down during a birthday celebration.
Curtis Smith, 29, was attending a barbecue with his friends last night on Box Avenue in Buffalo when he was shot multiple times.
“It was an innocent barbeque. There wasn’t any drama; no nothing, until these two cars pulled up and started shooting. This boy has not been in trouble, he was trying. He didn’t deserve to have his life taken,” said the victim’s mother Kimberly Barnes.
Smith was taken to ECMC where he later died.
