Two Buffalo teenagers are going to prison for 7 years for stomping and almost killing a homeless man last fall.

18 year old Aaron Gallon and 16 year old Armontae Moss will also be under 5 years of court supervision after they are finally released from jail.  A third teenager involved in the crime, 15 year old Larry Durham Jr. will be sentenced in State Supreme Court next week.  All three teens pleaded guilty to second degree attempted murder.

The trio badly beat up an unidentified 64 year old man at the corner of Ellicott and Broadway in the Queen City on September 22nd last year, causing severe head trauma and skull fractures.
