BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A little more than two months after allegedly shooting the owner of the popular Zoe Restaurant in Clarence, Christopher Boyd was picked up on the city’s east side — but on different charges.
New York State Police say the shooting happened in early September, and was the result of a robbery.
Boyd was picked up on Grant Street Wednesday afternoon on outstanding warrants.
Boyd is facing a dozen charges related to the shooting at Zoe and other crimes, including felony assault, burglary, resisting arrest and two counts of robbery.
Police say on Sept. 4, the restaurant owner, 44-year-old Alexander Pozantidis, was closing down the restaurant when he was robbed and shot twice in the arm. He’s since recovered, and police said they didn’t have any suspects at the time.
However, CrimeStoppers issued a warrant for Christopher Boyd just two days after the shooting — again on different charges.
State police are expected to released more information about the incident and Boyd’s role next week, including whether the restaurant owner was targeted or whether the shooting was a random act.
