Sheriff’s Deputies stopped a vehicle on Rt. 5 and 20 in the town of Hanover just before 3 a.m. Saturday. During the stop they allegedly found a loaded handgun with a high capacity magazine.
While deputies were securing the firearm, the vehicle fled the scene. Deputies were then led on a high speed through Silver Creek and into the Town of Sheridan. The vehicle eventually crashed in a yard near Route 5 and Newell St.
Police say an unidentified male in the vehicle was taken by Mercy Flight to ECMC. Meanwhile a woman who was also in the car – identified as 24 year-old Shakilah William of Buffalo – was transported to Brooks Memorial Hospital by Alstar Ambulance.
Police say charges are pending and the investigation is on-going.
