Big Progress at Riverworks in Buffalo


BUFFALO, N.Y. - Work is continuing on the Riverworks Complex along the Buffalo River. Part of it will open soon, and another part will open on New Year's Day.

The facility on Ganson Street hosted the pond hockey tournament last February. Since then, a lot has changed. The ice rinks are almost done. They'll be open on November 24th. Crews are working on the main indoor venue... which can host events.
That will be open January First.

Those behind Riverworks say they're happy to be part of everything that's happening downtown and nearby.

BPD checks death records and pistol permit records


BUFFALO, NY – Buffalo Police say they're determined to get more guns off the streets and now they're checking to see whether pistol permit holders have passed away and what happened to their gun or guns.

During a press conference last week regarding weapons brought in illegally from Pennsylvania, police officials told reporters their biggest problem with weapons in crimes seems to involve guns that are stolen in burglaries from homes.

They feel that, in some cases, families are holding on to weapons even after the person who bought them originally has died.

So now they're actually looking for those situations.
