BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A shooting in Buffalo has claimed the life of a Bronx man who had just celebrated his college graduation.

Police say 23-year-old Javon Jackson was shot around 3 a.m. Sunday in the University Heights neighborhood.

He was taken to the Erie County Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Jackson graduated from the University of Buffalo on Saturday, and his parents were in town for the ceremony.

Police believe the gunman may have been with three other men when they walked up behind Jackson. One of the men fired at least two shots, hitting him.

Police are trying to determine whether a skirmish in a bar earlier was related to the shooting.
