Shooting at hookah lounge injures two

Amherst Police were called to the Habibi Sheesha Lounge on Main Street in the early hours this morning. An altercation that involved gunfire spread from the business into a nearby parking lot. Two individuals were transported to ECMC with undisclosed injuries. The investigation is continuing.

The hookah lounge is a popular spot near the UB campus.

A similar incident led Buffalo authorities to close a Habibi Sheesha Lounge on Elmwood Avenue last year.

Saturday & Sunday 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.
