Posted at 7:29 PM, Jun 02, 2016

A Buffalo man has been sentenced to 23 years in prison after pleading guilty to killing a man in a Niagara Street barbershop.

Luis Oliveras-Arvelo (aka “Chino"), 25, shot and killed Juan Santiago in September 2015.

Ten minutes before the shooting, Santiago had allegedly threatened Oliveras-Arvelo with a machete. The shooting appears to have been a retaliation.
