Buffalo Police say a 14-year-old girl was killed and five other teens were shot in a shooting on Jefferson Avenue late Saturday night.

At approximately 10:21 p.m., Chief of Detectives Craig Macy says police recieved calls for reports of loud music and groups outside smoking at the 1500 block of Jefferson Avenue. The call was quickly upgraded to reports of a fight. 

"Police were on scene for approximately 25 to 30 minutes where they dispersed several groups of kids fighting," Macy said.

Police then received a call shortly before 11:30 for reports of shots fired on on Alexander Avenue. Officials say minutes later it was discovered that several people had been shot. Detectives believe at least three guns were involved.

Authorities say six teens were shot, all between the ages of 14 and 16 years old.

“This has been a very tragic morning in the City of Buffalo," Mayor Byron Brown said. 

Officials say the 14-year-old girl was taken to Oishei Children's Hospital where she died from her injuries. Police have not yet publicly identified her, but say she was a student in the Buffalo Public School system. 

"How many more mothers and father need to cry about their kid before we do something about guns in this country and on our streets," Zeneta Everheart, Buffalo Common Council Woman, said.

Authorities say three teenagers listed in stable condition at ECMC have been treated and released. That includes two 15-year-old males and a 16-year-old female. A 15-year-old male remains in critical but stable condition at ECMC and, according to hospital officials this morning, is on his way to recovery.

Police say a 16-year-old boy was also grazed by gunfire, but declined medical treatment at the scene.

"No parent should have to deal with what these parents are dealing with now," Brown said.

"With this many people involved as potential witnesses, that is a hurdle in itself," Macy said. "But I am confident that this case will be closed with an arrest. 

Police are asking anyone with information regarding the shooting to call the Confidential TIPCALL Line at (716) 847-2255. The public is also urged to share any videos they might have regarding the incident. 

While the Buffalo Police Department does not believe there is an ongoing threat to the community, additional directed patrols will remain in place where the shooting occurred. Additional patrols are also in place at high schools in the City.
