Suspect says "no deal"

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — Detectives said Anthony McDougald, 18, was shot in the left arm near his bicep. The bullet then went through the arm and entered his chest.

McDougald was taken to Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center and then transferred to the Erie County Medical Center. He eventually recovered from his wounds.

Rubin was arrested the day after the shooting. Buck was taken into custody, without incident, in the area of 24th Street and Whitney Avenue a few days later.

Taggart was arrested a couple of weeks later, after a brief stand-off with Town of Amherst Police. Acting on what they said was a tip, Amherst cops converged on a Niagara Falls Boulevard motel and took Taggart into custody at gunpoint.

All three men are currently set to be tried together, however, Rubin's defense attorney has asked to have his client's trial "severed" from that of his co-defendants. Philip Dabney has argued that Rubin should not be tried along with Buck and Taggart because Buck gave a statement to Falls police detectives.

Prosecutors say nothing Buck said to investigators would impact Rubin's defense.

A hearing to determine whether or not Buck's statement can be used at the upcoming trial has been delayed because his attorney has stepped down from the case following criticism of his work by Niagara County Court Judge Matthew J. Murphy III.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
