Buffalo police say it was a vicious and brutal premeditated attack on 96 year old Levi Clayton in his Longview Avenue home.

Clayton's own home surveillance cameras were rolling on November 24, 2012 when the attack was carried out. Three men forced their way inside Clayton's home that Saturday night, beat him and got away with cash, jewelry, guns and other items.

Just over a month later in January 2013 police arrested 18 year old Justice Feggans on robbery and burglary charges and sources say Thursday, there's been a second arrest in the case.

Buffalo police say they are searching for more suspects.

Clayton suffered a broken jaw and was hospitalized after the beating but died this week. His family spoke out in November shortly after the attack.

"To see this happen, to know they were inside his house hitting him it hurts my heart, it just hurts my heart," said Paula Smith, Clayton's niece.

If clayton's death is officially linked to the attack charges could be upgraded against the suspects.

Clayton was a deacon at Friendship Baptist Church and a man who was loved by his friends and family now all they want is for the perpetrators of this crime to be brought to justice.

"Someone you love that's elderly, and you're close to and you think about how you feel if this happened to them, your grandmother, your aunt your uncle. Think what you would feel and what would you do?" said Smith.
