At least 10 people were killed in a shooting Saturday in Buffalo, New York, in the United States, the Associated Press reported. According to the local police, the alleged perpetrator has been arrested.
This tragic accident occurred in front of and inside the Top Friendly Market. It is located in an area inhabited mainly by blacks. It is located about 5 miles north of downtown Buffalo.
The operation spotted an attacker who first fired his rifle at people in a parking lot in front of the supermarket. The Associated Press, citing law enforcement officials, said the alleged perpetrator of the attack has been arrested. As reported by The Buffalo News, he was armed with a high-powered rifle, wearing a flak jacket, and a military helmet on his head.
Authorities said the perpetrator was an 18-year-old white man who “appears to be acting alone”. When the police arrived, the man was to be handed over to the officers. CBC News quoted the investigator as saying that the man was able to broadcast the shooting live using a helmet-mounted camera. The authorities are checking whether he has posted a statement on the web.
Investigators have not yet established a clear motive for the crime. They are investigating whether her motives are racist.
Like getting into a horror movie.
And the US service “The Buffalo News” claimed that in addition to the 10 dead – five in the parking lot – three others were injured, including two in critical condition. Reporters add that one of the dead was a recently retired police officer in Buffalo who worked as a security guard at the store.
– It’s like Getting into a horror movie but it’s all real. Armageddon, said one of the police officers at the scene.
New York Governor Cathy Hochhol tweeted that she was “closely following the shooting at a grocery store in Buffalo,” her hometown. As she emphasized, the state authorities offered assistance to the local authorities.
The Buffalo shooting occurred just over a year after the March 2021 attack on a King Soopers grocery store in Boulder, Colorado, that killed 10 people.
