A man involved in a double shooting before a vehicle he was in went through a guardrail and crashed on Rt. 33 has been captured.

Leonard “Pooder” Robinson, 20, of Buffalo was arraigned Tuesday on second degree murder, second degree attempted murder and second degree criminal possession of a weapon.

On November 29 last year, authorities say Robinson burst into a home on Purdy Street and opened fire, killing 42-year-old Antwaine Vance and injuring 24-year-old Dominique Jackson.

After the shooting, Robinson allegedly fled the area in a vehicle driven by 19-year-old Carresian Holloway. She went through a guardrail on Humboldt Parkway and crashed landed on Rt. 33 West.

Holloway is charged with criminal possession of a weapon, criminal mischief and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. Police say they recovered a weapon from her vehicle, though she has not been charged in connection with the murder.

Robinson was located by U.S. Marshals in Los Angeles and extradited back to Buffalo. If convicted, he faces up to 50 years to life in prison.
