BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Police are investigating after a man was found shot to death in a van right outside a Buffalo school.
The discovery was made at around 1:30 p.m. Thursday on Woodlawn Avenue, near the Buffalo Academy for Visual and Performing Arts.
The crime briefly delayed school dismissal as buses were re-routed to Michigan Avenue to pick up students.
Teachers, staff and other adults worked to shield students’ eyes from the scene.
Buffalo Community Peacemakers were also there, saying “With this being so close to a school, our only concern is making sure these students are getting home safely, trying to make sure the parents are calm, making sure the students don’t see any of the things that’s going on.”
The identity of the victim has not yet been released, and no arrests have been made.
