Shooting victim fires his gun at assailant

A Buffalo man was shot in the right thigh and then fired his own gun at his assailant Wednesday night at West Delavan Avenue and Grant Street.

Marlin Kemp, no age listed, of Harp Place, was approached at about 9:30 p.m. as he left a corner store.

Police said a man wearing a black hooded shirt and black baseball cap approached Kemp and said, "Yo, what's good? What's good?" and then pointed a revolver at him.

Kemp grabbed the assailant's gun, was shot in his thigh and ran south on Grant Street. The gunman fired two more shots at the fleeing Kemp and Kemp, who also was armed, returned fire but did not hit the other man, according to witnesses.

Officers recovered a .22-caliber handgun in a garbage can in the 200 block of Grant Street. No arrest has been made.
