An 18-year-old white man opened fire at a Buffalo supermarket on Saturday, killing 10 people and injuring three others, said law enforcement officials, who are investigating the incident as a hate crime and a cases of racially motivated violent extremism. Eleven of the 13 people were black.
Hours after the attack, Payton Gendron of Conklin, NY, was charged with first degree murder and pleaded not guilty. He is being held without bail. Authorities say Gendron traveled to Buffalo and carried out the shooting at Tops Friendly Markets using an assault weapon and dressed in tactical gear, including a helmet with a camera attached, from which he broadcast live online shooting. After shooting people in the parking lot and inside the store, Gendron turned himself in to police, officials said.
