BUFFALO, NY - Recent multiple shootings involving Buffalo teenagers has prompted a common council member to take action.
Rasheed Wyatt announced on Friday he's opening a new University District office on Bailey Avenue in an effort to prevent future violence.
Wyatt says he feels being more accessible out in the community rather than downtown. The office will make it easier for neighbors in his district to come to him with their concerns, he said.
Wyatt also announced the formation of a district youth council.
Pastor Al Wilson, who runs the Martha Mitchell Community Center -- closest to where the shootings happened -- says he's hoping it will help.
He says he's already seen a change in his neighborhood.
