One Week Later, Patrons Return To Downtown Bars & Restaurants

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Exactly one week after a gunman shot eight people outside of the City Grill, many patrons returned to Downtown Buffalo's bars and restaurants undaunted by the violence.

"I believe in this city," said bride-to-be Cameron Stelmach, as she held rehearsal dinner at the City Grill. "I bought a house in this city. I'm having my wedding in this city. And so I want more people to see the good side of this city."

While it may take weeks, if not longer, to get a true sense of how the murder of four partygoers might affect business for bar and restaurant owners, many of the Friday club goers sounded determined not to let the violence affect their lives.

REPORTER: Does it concern you at all that there was some violence down here?

STELMACH: It doesn't really concern me that it was down here. I really think that was a random act of violence. I don't think it reflects the neighborhood at all.

Erie County District Attorney Frank Sedita says he needs a few of those people to come forward, identify themselves, and help bring a mass murderer to justice.

So, why haven't people been cooperating?

"I think unfortunately it comes down to fear," says the Reverend Darius Pridgen of True Bethel Baptist Church. "And we have to be very, very sensitive to that, because I think it's easy to say (come forward) if you don't live in the neighborhood."
