13 Shot, 10 Dead In 'Racially Motivated Hate Crime' At Buffalo Supermarket: Sheriff
Ten people were killed and three others injured in what authorities have described as a “racially-motivated” shooting at a Buffalo, New York, supermarket on Saturday.
Police arrested Payton Gendron, an 18-year-old white male, after he ― armed with an assault rifle and wearing a tactical vest ― opened fire outside and inside the Tops Friendly Market. The market is in a predominately Black neighborhood, about 3 miles north of downtown Buffalo.
At a press conference later Saturday, Erie County Sheriff John Garcia called the shooting a hate crime.
