Fillmore District Council Member Mitch Nowakowski said he was saddened by the shooting in a statement released on Sunday.
“I am deeply saddened by the tragic act of violence that took place at Club Marcella early Sunday morning, resulting in the loss of life,” Nowakowski’s statement said. “I will continue to work with our local authorities, city officials, and community stakeholders to ensure safety in the cobblestone district. Violence has no place in our community, and I continue to remain in constant and open communication with Buffalo Police and the owners of Marcella’s as the investigation proceeds.”
This is the second shooting within the last two weeks at Club Marcella. Late last month, a security guard was shot in the club’s parking lot.
A spokesperson for the City of Buffalo told WIVB that shutting down the club is “something that will be reviewed” by the City.
