A Buffalo man has been arrested and charged with murder in the 2nd degree in connection with a January 2012 fatal shooting.

21-year-old Laquann Morgan was charged with murder for the shooting death of 25-year-old Adrian Huggins Jr.

The shooting occurred on Jan. 8, 2012 near the intersection of Dodge Street and Wohlers Avenue just before 7 p.m.

11 days later, Huggins died from his injuries at ECMC.

"The victim was a front seat passenger in a vehicle, when the suspect approached and fired numerous shots, which struck both the driver and Mr. Huggins, who succumbed to his injuries eleven days," said Chief of Detectives Dennis Richards.

Morgan has been in custody on unrelated charges and was arraigned on the murder count in Buffalo City Court earlier today.
