NIAGARA FALLS – A 23-year-old man reported being shot at 8:15 p.m. Sunday in the 2900 block of Greenview Terrace.

Police found the man with a gunshot wound to the upper right chest area and reported that he was conscious at the scene. He told police he didn’t know who shot him and would not provide any description other than to say they wore masks. He was taken to Erie County Medical Center for treatment.

A woman at the scene said the victim had on “ongoing beef” with the two unnamed men.

She said when she heard the shots fired she ran inside with a one and five-year-old and locked the door, while the victim was chased around by the suspects.

A least one shot was fired at the suspect as he entered a back door. One bullet passed through the rear door, passed through the freezer door and became lodged deep inside the freezer insulation, reported police.
