BUFFALO, N.Y. (WBEN) - New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is investigating Buffalo police checkpoints.

The Buffalo News first reported that the investigation is taking place after their use of traffic checkpoints near public housing developments. The local Black Lives Matter chapter and other community groups filed a complaint to the state at the end of August.

STATEMENT FROM BUFFALO POLICE SPOKESMAN MICHAEL DeGEORGE

"As we said before the complaint was filed, any allegation of discrimination is completely false.  Since that complaint is currently being litigated, any further comment on this matter would be inappropriate at this time. "
