BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — A man is dead and another is in custody following a stabbing outside a Buffalo grocery store late Friday morning.
Initially investigators were called to the scene of a "serious assault" in a parking lot near 2101 Elmwood Avenue in North Buffalo. A short time later, Buffalo Police Captain Jeff Rinaldo issued an update that the investigation into the assault turned into a homicide investigation.
The Erie County District Attorney's Office says 41-year-old Duane Donaldson was allegedly stabbed to death by 37-year-old Frederick D. Jordan, III outside the Tops Friendly Markets location on Elmwood.
A source tells 7 Eyewitness News the dispute had to do with rent and finances. According to the source, a volunteer firefighter from the Town of Tonawanda acted heroically and broke up the fight.
Jordan was arraigned in Buffalo City Court Friday night and faces a second degree murder charge. He is being held without bail and is due back in court June 1.
