A 33-year-old East Ferry Street man was arrested moments after he allegedly fired three gunshots into the ceiling of a food store in the 900 block of Jefferson Avenue at East North Street, frightening several other patrons about 12:30 a.m. Thursday.

Habib Nassar was quickly arrested by a Buffalo police officer who was in the area and heard the gunfire in the store. Two handguns were seized from Nassar who was charged with second-degree reckless endangerment. No motive for the random gunfire was disclosed.
