  • A man being sought for the fatal beating of a 96-year-old church deacon in Buffalo has been captured in central New York.
    The Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office tells YNN in Buffalo that 23-year-old Elhajji Elshabazz was arrested Wednesday afternoon after he tried to rob a woman at gunpoint in the parking lot of an Ithaca motel.
    Elshabazz was wanted by police in Buffalo for the death of Levi Clayton, who was beaten during a break-in at his home last November. Clayton died in April due to blunt force trauma suffered in the attack. The break-in was captured by Clayton’s home surveillance cameras.
    Three other young men have already been charged with second-degree murder and burglary in connection with Clayton’s death.
