Buffalo mass shooting: 10 reported dead as police investigate manifesto

Buffalo, New York, police say 10 people are dead and a suspect is in custody after a gunman with a rifle and body armour opened fire at a supermarket in the city.

The shooting took place at Tops in the 1200 block of Jefferson Avenue.

“This was pure evil,” said Erie County sheriff John Garcia in a press conference on Saturday. “It was straight up racially motivated hate crime from somebody outside of our community.”

Peyton Gendron of Broome County, New York, was arraigned and charged with murder in the first degree on Saturday, to which he pleaded not guilty.

In addition to the 10 who were killed, a group that included a retired Buffalo police officer working as a security guard, another three suffered non-lethal injuries.

Investigators are looking into whether the alleged shooter livestreamed the massacre and posted a white supremacist manifesto online.

The suspect is an 18-year-old white male who came from another county in New York state, officials said.

Local, state, and federal officials said they were monitoring the situation and assisting with the investigation.
