Niagara County District Attorney Brian D. Seaman announced a Niagara County jury returned a guilty verdict in the murder case against Antonio Carr, age 30, of Niagara Falls, this afternoon. Carr was found guilty of murder in the second degree, as well as multiple weapons counts, in the slaying of 57-year-old Tracy Greene at the victim’s barber shop in Niagara Falls on Oct. 2, 2021.
Seaman said, “This was a cold-blooded killing. The defendant shot the victim with a small-caliber rifle. When those shots weren’t fatal, he left, returned moments later with a 9 mm handgun, and shot him six more times. Some of those shots were fired from directly over the victim while he lay on the floor.
“This verdict will ensure that this extremely dangerous individual is off the streets of Niagara Falls for good.”
The case was investigated by the Niagara Falls Police Department and prosecuted by First Assistant District Attorney Doreen Hoffmann and Executive Assistant Mary Jean Bowman.
Carr faces as much as 55 years to life in prison when he returns to court to be sentenced by County Court Judge Caroline Wojtaszek on July 28.
