BUFFALO, N.Y. — A western New York man has pleaded guilty to shooting the owner of the suburban Buffalo restaurant where he used to work.
The Erie County District Attorney’s Office says 30-year-old Christopher Boyd, of Buffalo, pleaded guilty Thursday to charges that include attempted murder, assault and burglary.
A year ago this month Boyd shot and wounded the 44-year-old owner of a town of Clarence restaurant as he was leaving the business with the day’s proceeds. The man was shot in the arm and chest but survived.
Boyd also pleaded guilty to three other crimes, including a carjacking in Buffalo in July 2016. He was captured last November at a Buffalo deli while armed with a handgun.
Boyd faces a maximum of 25 years to life in prison when he’s sentenced Oct. 12.
