Person of interest

Buffalo police homicide detectives continued their investigation into a double shooting which occurred shortly after one o'clock Monday afternoon. Police have identified an individual they would like to question in regards to the double shooting and subsequent traffic accident. Northwest District officers were originally sent to 173 St. Lawrence Ave. for a reported vehicular accident in which a car hit a tree.

Responding police officers and rescue personnel quickly learned that the driver and a female front seat passenger had been shot. The victims were both rushed to Erie County Medical Center, where they remain in very critical condition. They have been identified as 26 year old Frank Militello, of Amherst St., Buffalo, the driver and 22 year old Kiele Coleman of LaSalle Ave., Kenmore, his front seat passenger.

Homicide squad detectives were called to the scene due to the serious nature of the injuries sustained by the vehicle's occupants.

Detectives are now looking to question Adrienne S. March, a black female, 21 years old, who is described as 5'7" and 170 pounds. Among addresses listed for her is an apartment near the scene of the accident on St. Lawrence, as well as Bennett Village Terrace and Amherst St., in Buffalo. "Ms. March was last seen wearing a tan Carhart jacket, baggy dark blue jeans and a white tee shirt, in the vicinity of St. Lawrence and Virgil Avenue, although she could have changed her clothing," according to Dennis J. Richards, chief of detectives.

She should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information on her immediate whereabouts should call 911.
