A 19-year-old Custer Street man was taken to Erie County Medical Center Wednesday afternoon for treatment of a gunshot wound to the buttocks that he claimed he suffered when accosted by three men on Martha Avenue about noontime. And Buffalo police then arrested him.

Sherrod A. Ogletree said he was shot as he fled the men during the incident, with a bullet passing through part of his left leg and exiting through his thigh, according to police. But Ogletree was arrested when police found he was facing an Erie County Sheriff’s warrant for a 2013 criminal incident. Police continued to look for his shooter.
