Homicide detectives in Buffalo are seeking a 19-year-old man in connection to the double shooting on Purdy Street that police say led to a crash on Rt. 33.

Leonard Robinson Jr., aka "Pooter," is a person of interest in the November 29th shooting. Police say someone burst through the door of a home on Purdy Street and started shooting, killing 42-year-old Antwaine Vance and injuring 24-year-old Dominique Jackson.
