Kimanhi Hinds

A man is now awaiting sentencing after being convicted of murder for a shooting that killed another man and injured a security guard at a bar in the East End of Rochester on Memorial Day last year. Prosecutors said the now 37-year-old Randy Burney shot and killed 41-year-old Kimanhi Hinds around 2:00am on May 29th inside Flour City Station on East Avenue. The security guard was hit by the same bullet but survived. What apparently started as a bar fight quickly turned into a homicide. Burney’s sentencing is scheduled for May 24th.




Cory Neild

A sex crime suspect facing serious charges in Wayne County has been released from custody. 26-year-old Cory Neild of Williamson, is facing eight felony counts of promoting and possessing a sexual performance by a child following a months-long investigation stemming from a cyber tip line report, according to New York State Police. Neild was released and referred to pretrial services for weekly check-ins. His next court date is one week from today, Wednesday, April 24.



Davante Thompson

A Buffalo man who was convicted of stabbing multiple family members will be spending the next 40 years behind bars. Prosecutors say 27-year-old Davante Thompson attacked the victims at a home they shared on Humboldt Parkway back in August. All three individuals were taken to Erie County Medical Center but survived their wounds. Thompson will spend a decade on probation once he’s released from custody and must stay away from the victims until 2068.

The Buffalo Sabres have fired head coach Don Granato. It happened yesterday; making him the seventh coach to be ousted during what’s grown into an NHL-record 13-season playoff drought. Granato completed his third full season in Buffalo after taking over on an interim basis in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic-shortened 2021 season after Ralph Krueger was fired. And the move comes with the 56-year-old Granato still having two seasons left on his contract, which featured an extension that kicked in to start next season. He finishes with a record of 122-125-27 in Buffalo. The team also announced the firing of assistant coach Jason Christie and video coordinator Matt Smith. The Sabres stumbled through a season in which the team won three straight games just twice and were too often unable to overcome slow starts. The Sabres only missed the playoffs last season by two points but finished this season with a 39-37-6 record, and had been eliminated from playoff contention last week. The Sabres’ playoff drought is tied with the New York Jets as being the longest active drought in North America’s four major professional sports.


The playoffs-bound Rochester Amerks host the Toronto Marlies tonight. Face-off is at 7:05.
