Buffalo Police looking for a person of interest in recent shooting

Leonard Robinson Jr.
Buffalo Police Department

Buffalo homicide detectives are on the lookout for a person of interest in connection with the shooting of two individuals at 302 Purdy Street on November 29.

The individual is identified as 19-year-old Leonard Robinson Jr., also known as "Pooter." He is described as a black male, five feet nine inches tall, and 190 pounds with tattoos on both arms. He was born December 16, 1995.

Robinson may have been injured in an auto accident on the Kensington Expressway westbound shortly after the shootings. Police say he may seek treatment at an area hospital facility.

If he is seen, you're advised to call 911 and do not attempt to stop or confront him.
