As I said for the last defensive shooting, whenever there's an armed citizen I'm going to include the names and local numbers for state reps. from the area where it took place so local members can contact them and remind them this sort of thing goes on in their district:

Sam Hoyt, 716-885-9630, Crystal Peoples, 716-897-9714, Mark Schroeder, 716-826-0152, Bill Stachowski, 716-826-3344, Antoine Thompson, 716-854-8705.

A state Division of Parole employee scared off a would-be robber late Thursday by firing two shots from his own gun outside the HSBC branch bank at 3109 Bailey Ave., Buffalo police said.

The intended victim told Buffalo police he was accosted just before midnight by a man wearing all black and a mask who displayed a gun and demanded money. The would-be robber fled when his intended victim fired two shots. It was unknown if the bandit was hit by the gunfire.
