Search continues for killer of Lafayette student

By Chris Jamele

Buffalo, NY – Jawaan Daniels, the Lafayette High School freshman who was gunned down on Grant Street Friday afternoon, is being called a model son by family members.

Daniels was active in school and in his church. Daniels' aunt claims that her nephew was in the wrong place at the wrong time and that one of the boys near him was the target of the shooter. Police believe that the shooter escaped the scene on a bicycle and are still searching for suspects.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact police.
