Below is one edited clip from a recorded phone call of Cheektowaga Central teachers speaking with Dontre Jones. Jones was in the Erie County Holding Center awaiting trial in the fatal shooting of a teenager in Cheektowaga Town Park.
During the conversation a teacher speculates on who might testify, names the student and calls that student a "snitch."
"I hear [Witness 1] snitched on you," can be heard near the 4:20 mark of the clip.
Cheektowaga Police Chief David Zack said today during a news conference, "That's when the roof blew off for us, when you start calling kids snitches."
