Accused Gunman Arrested on Indictment Warrant in Maryland for Injuring Three Victims in Shooting in Elmwood Village

Acting Erie County District Attorney Michael J. Keane announces that 29-year-old Dominique Singletary of Buffalo was arraigned this morning before State Supreme Court Justice Debra Givens on an indictment charging him with three counts of Attempted Murder in the Second Degree (Class “B” violent felony), one count of Assault in the First Degree (Class “B” violent felonies), two counts of Assault in the Second Degree (Class “D” felonies) and one count of Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Second Degree (Class “C” violent felony). 

It is alleged that on Saturday, June 1, 2024, at approximately 2:30 a.m., the defendant intentionally fired multiple shots with an illegal weapon at the victims during an altercation on the 1100 block of Elmwood Avenue in the City of Buffalo. Three adult males were injured by gunfire. The victims were treated at ECMC. One victim suffered serious physical injuries and the other two victims suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The defendant was recently located in Maryland by the US Marshals Service Maryland Fugitive Task Force where he was arrested on the indictment warrant. Yesterday, he was returned to Western New York to face prosecution after waiving extradition proceedings. 

Singletary was held without bail. A return court date has not been scheduled at this time. Temporary orders of protection were issued on behalf of the victims. 

If convicted of the highest counts, Singletary faces a maximum sentence of 75 years in prison.   

Acting DA Keane commends the Buffalo Police Department Gun Violence Unit and the US Marshals Service for their work in this investigation.  

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Frank A. Strano of the Major Crimes Bureau and Assistant District Attorney Thomas J. Comfort of the Felony Trials Bureau.

As are all persons accused of a crime, the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
