Mass shooting in Buffalo: 10 dead reported as police investigate manifesto

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

Filming took place at Tops on the 1200 block of Jefferson Avenue.

“It was pure evil,” Erie County Sheriff John Garcia said in a news conference on Saturday. “It was a racially motivated hate crime by someone outside of our community.”

Payton Gendron, of Broome County, New York, was arraigned Saturday and charged with first-degree murder, of which he pleaded not guilty.

In addition to the 10 killed, a group that included a retired Buffalo police officer who worked as a security guard suffered three other nonfatal injuries.

Investigators are investigating whether the suspected gunman live-streamed the massacre and posted a white supremacist manifesto online.

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

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