Man accused of providing gun in fatal shooting faces charges
A Buffalo man accused of providing a gun that was used in a fatal September shooting has been arraigned in State Supreme Court on an indictment charging him with seconddegree murder, according to the Erie County District Attorney’s Office.
Anthony Moore, 19, also was charged with one count of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
On Sept. 28, 2018, Brandon Williams, 20, of Buffalo was fatally shot by Damoni Alexander, 18, also of Buffalo, on Lisbon Avenue. Alexander has pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree manslaughter, prosecutors said.
While Alexander admitted to pulling the trigger, Moore is accused of providing Alexander with the illegal gun and encouraging him to shoot Williams during a verbal altercation, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
