BUFFALO, New York — A Buffalo police officer responding to a domestic call on Walden Avenue Wednesday afternoon shot an armed man who ran from the house and then wrestled with the officer, police said.
"The suspect apparently reached for the weapon several times — even during the struggle with the officer, placing the officer in imminent fear for his life," said Dennis J. Richards, chief of detectives.
