Buffalo police to release body cam video from shooting of homicide suspect

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The Buffalo Police Department is set to release body cam footage Thursday from an incident last week in which they said officers shot a homicide suspect who had also allegedly fired at police.

The video will be available after their 2 p.m. press conference, which can be seen above.

Police said they were responding to a call of a shooting near Broadway and Sears Street last Friday when the suspect, later identified as 27-year-old Nakeem Haynes of Buffalo, shot at officers through the window of their patrol vehicle.

Officers went after Haynes on foot, they said. The pursuit ended when officers shot him eight times. Haynes was said to be in critical condition at Erie County Medical Center last Friday.

Haynes faces an attempted murder charge. Other charges are pending.

The initial shooting victim, 63-year-old Atlas Johnson of Buffalo, was declared dead at the scene.
