A Buffalo man was shot in the leg early Saturday in the city’s Broadway-Fillmore neighborhood.

Officers responded at 12:06 a.m. to the report of shots fired on Broadway, near Rother Avenue, and several vehicles leaving the scene, according to reports.

Brandon Herbert, 24, of Playter Street, was shot in his left calf and was taken to Erie County Medical Center, where he was treated and released, a hospital official said.

Herbert and other witnesses told police they did not see a shooter, but thought the gunman was in a maroon-colored truck. Police recovered five shell casings from a 9mm handgun in the 1100 block of Broadway.
