8 Shot 4 Dead

BUFFALO, NY -- Four people were killed and fourmore were injured in a shooting outside a restaurant in downtown Buffalo early Saturday, according to police.

A wedding reception was taking place at the City Grill when shots rang out around 2:30 a.m., sparking a panic.

The dead included two men, ages 26 and 30, and two women, who were 27 and 32 years old, Richards said.

Three were pronounced dead at the scene and another died at the hospital.

The 30-year-old man was in town from Texas for an anniversary celebration scheduled for later Saturday, Richards said. His wife was not among those struck by gunfire. The couple had ties to Buffalo, authorities said.

Raymond Wilhite said his 32-year-old daughter, Tiffany Wilhite, was among those killed. He called the shootings "senseless, random killing."

The wounded were all men.

One partygoer who was inside the bar at the time told the Associated Press, "A lot of people were real upset, just trying to get out of the way. Nobody knew where anything was coming from. Everyone was in a panic."

Police haven't commented about motive.

Chief of Detectives Dennis Richards said management had chosen to close down and was asking everyone to leave the restaurant, and that there were "verbal things going on."

People were leaving when the shooting happened.

Investigators did not know how many shooters there were.

Late Saturday morning, police arrested one man at a Buffalo house, but they wouldn't say if it was related to the shootings.
