Mayor Byron Brown says he doesn’t currently have plans for a potential ban on large outdoor gatherings at night in the city of Buffalo. This comes after an uptick in violence in the city.  

Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren issued a similar order Wednesday, due to an uptick in violence in their city.

While Mayor Brown says that right now the city doesn’t have plans to enact such a ban, he adds that a new policing initiative to help with gun violence will be announced next week when they have more data.
