Ying allegedly strangled employee in Town


Tonawanda News — Ying's Wings and Things plans to close the restaurant on December 16 and auction off the assets, according to Cash Realty & Auctions. The auction will be held at the restaurant's location at 2309 Eggert Rd in Tonawanda on December 27 at 10 a.m. and will include restaurant equipment, furniture and decor.

The business will likely merge with Ying's other location in Depew, and the company will continue takeout and delivery orders.

The news comes after a number of incidents at the Tonawanda restaurant.

Ying was just in town court on Monday, when he pleaded not guilty to criminal nuisance. The charge was levied against him on Nov. 17 after a shooting outside the restaurant injured one person.

The shooter has not been arrested. 

The charge was the fifth criminal nuisance charge Ying has faced since he began holding Saturday night college parties for patrons 18 and older in September, which he has since stopped hosting.

Between 100 and 150 students attended the non-alcohol events, which were hosted by promoter 100 Entertainment. Ying said the vast majority of those who attended the events were African American and said the town police department were discriminating against both his patrons and his employees.

Chief Anthony Palombo denied the accusations.
