Mass shooting at Buffalo supermarket leaves at least 10 dead in "racially motivated" attack


A shooting at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York left at least 10 dead as police say the suspect possibly live-streamed his actions on social media.

Vigils and prayers services were being held across the city Sunday after authorities said a teenage gunman, wearing tactical gear and a livestreaming camera, killed 10 people and wounded three more in a hate-fueled shooting rampage at a busy supermarket.

Eleven of the 13 people who were shot were Black, Buffalo Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia said. The suspect, who was taken into custody at the scene, is white. The FBI is investigating the shooting as a hate crime and racially-motivated violent extremism.
