Several people were injured and several are pronounced dead after a gunman opened fire at a Buffalo grocery store on Saturday during the live broadcast.
At least 9 people were shot, along with a number of people who had been declared useless on the premises of Tops Grocery Store at 1275 Jefferson Avenue, BNO News reported.
The suspect, filmed wearing an Army uniform, was taken into custody by the Buffalo Police Department.
Video of the arrest reveals police handcuffing the suspect and attempting to move people away from the scene while a number of our bodies lie motionless on the ground.
“A shooter is a type of mass shooter,” says one of the many onlookers as police and emergency responders detain the person in army uniform.
“Damn, look at him, a younger boy,” the viewer says as he comments on one of our bodies.
The police then ask the spectators to get up to take control of the situation.

Eric County Executive Mark Polonczar confirmed there was a shooting in the area and residents should stay away from the grocery store.
“I have been offered a number of energetic filming opportunities at Tops Markets on Jefferson Street in Buffalo,” Poloncarz tweeted. “The police are on the spot. Please stay away from the kingdom.
New York Governor Kathy Hochul responded to the shooting and said the state has provided assistance to local officers.
Will G., a frozen dairy worker at the grocery store, said he was out of the cooler to store milk when the shooting happened.
“I just heard images. Photos and photos and photos,” he told Buffalo News. “It looked like the issues had collapsed.”
He said he hid in the cooler and additional people joined him to take cover from the gunfire.
‘I hid. I just hid,” he said. I wasn’t going to leave this room.
It’s a growing story.
