A 61-year-old Buffalo man was arrested following a fatal shooting in South Buffalo early Sunday.

Michael Rattle has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of Daniel Wolfe, 63. He was arraigned Monday morning, according to the Erie County District Attorney’s Office.

Prosecutors said Rattle fatally shot Wolfe at about 4 a.m. Sunday inside an apartment on Geary Street, which is off Seneca Street.

The Buffalo Police Department said officers found Wolfe dead from a gunshot wound after they responded to a report that a person had been shot.

Rattle was virtually arraigned Monday morning on the second-degree murder charge before Buffalo City Court Judge Betty Calvo-Torres.

Rattle is scheduled to return to court at 3 p.m. Thursday for a felony hearing. He was remanded without bail.

If convicted of the charge, Rattle faces a maximum of 25 years to life in prison.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Christine M. Garvey of the DA’s Homicide Bureau.
