BUFFALO, N.Y. – University at Buffalo Police today
arrested a Cheektowaga man and charged him with displaying what
appeared to be a handgun earlier this week in Clark Hall on the
university’s South Campus.
UB police arrested Damon Erving, 23, of Windwood Avenue in
Cheektowaga, and charged him with second-degree menacing for
displaying what police now believe was a BB gun around 3 p.m.
Monday in the gymnasium in Clark Hall. The man was not a student at
UB or affiliated with the university, according to police.
Erving, who police said was cooperating with the investigation,
faces a menacing charge, a class A misdemeanor, and unlawful
possession of a weapon on school grounds, which is a violation.
Charging the suspect was Investigator Wayne Colton.
Erving is accused with pulling out the weapon during an argument
in a pick-up basketball game in the gym. No shots were fired and no
one was injured, UB police said. The suspect has been banned from
any UB campus.
