While a reporter was on the scene around 4 p.m. a loud bang was heard and police officers drew their weapons in response.

A 26-year-old man ran into the house (1339 Whitney Ave.) during the fight and emerged with a gun. The man fired one round, injuring a 29-year-old man in the forearm.

While detectives were interviewing witnesses of the first shooting, at 3:15 p.m. offers were called to the 1300 block of Whitney Ave. once again for a report of shots fired.

Niagara Falls Police responded to the scene at 2 p.m., by which time most of the involved had fled the scene, including the shooter. At the scene, police were told that a man had exited a auto in a nearby alley, ran between two houses and fired shots at 1339 Whitney.

Meanwhile, Cox was charged with first-degree assault and first-degree reckless endangerment for his alleged role in both incidents. Detectives found a bullet hole in the front of the residence, as well as a slug on the floor inside.

Another woman was also injured in the fight.

They also found Cox hiding inside the home. He will be arranged in Niagara Falls City Court Wednesday morning. She was treated and released from the hospital. A 16-year-old was found with non-life threatening stab wounds, and received treatment at a local hospital. Police said they were able to identify her as a mutual combatant in the initial melee based on a video of the fight that was posted on Facebook. Police said they made two subsequent arrests for disorderly conduct and failure to disperse, neither of which was connected to the stabbing.
