BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) – A judge in Buffalo is set to hear a second and final day of testimony in a hearing to determine whether statements made by the suspect in a mass shooting outside a Buffalo restaurant will be part of his trial.

A police detective said Monday that he read 23-year-old Riccardo McCray his rights and made sure he understood them before questioning him about the Aug. 14 shooting outside City Grill restaurant that left four dead and four injured.

The investigator said McCray told him someone opened fire during a confrontation outside the downtown restaurant and that he got down on the ground. McCray’s lawyer suggested there may have been two shooters.

McCray has pleaded not guilty to first- and second-degree murder. His trial is scheduled for March.
