Sons Of Azrael Guitarist Tony Lorenzo Shot In Armed Robbery And Paralyzed
According to Buffalo's WIVB-TV, Sons Of Azarael guitarist Tony Lorenzo was shot in an armed robbery, which took place on Wednesday the 26th of October in the city's Elmwood Village area and is now paralyzed from the waist down, after a bullet was lodged in his spine.
Lorenzo's friend, Alex Artemas, said, "Him and I were just walking to a friend's house, and it was just a complete random hit, came from behind, never saw it coming."
"The kid asked me, he said, 'Give me what you got.' And before I could even get my wallet out, he just shot me," said Tony.
Initial reports were that the victim may have known his attacker.
Tony's mother, Caroline Bronckers, said, "He absolutely did not know his attacker, and I want that cleared."
Tony added, "I'm not a gang banger. I'm not someone who owes anyone money. I don't start beefs. I'm just a normal guy, you know? I work at Pano's Restaurant."
"I'm not going to run away from my town. I'm not going to up and move away. I want people on the west side to realize this stuff is happening and to look out for each other," said Tony.
The determination of Tony and his family even prompted the mayor to come to ECMC and pay him a visit at his bedside.
Tony said, "Byron Brown walked up here on his own accord and told me he is sparing no expense to find who did this to me, and I can't tell you you how proud I was to hear that."
Doctors have to wait for the swelling to go down before they can remove the bullet. Friends in the local music community plan to hold some kind of fundraiser, but their first hope is catching the man who did this.
