A planned attack left at least 10 dead in Buffalo, New York Saturday after a teen reportedly attempted to livestream an allegedly manifesto-driven, “racially motivated” shooting.

Authorities have identified 18-year-old Payton Gendron of Conklin, NY as the suspect in the shooting at the Tops Friendly Market in Buffalo. After traveling about 200 miles to his targeted location, the young man described as “heavily armed” opened fire in the parking lot around 2:30 in the afternoon before entering the grocery store to continue his assault.

Buffalo Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia explained, of the four individuals struck outside the building, three were fatally wounded, according to the Associated Press. When the gunman entered the store he was met by security guard and former Buffalo police officer Aaron Salter, Jr., who fired upon the suspect in an attempt to stop him. Reports stated that Salter’s bullets were stopped by the suspects armor before return fire struck and killed Salter.

The suspect proceeded through the store firing upon individuals resulting in 10 fatalities and three others wounded. When police entered the store, they confronted the suspect who had put his own rifle to his neck in a threat of suicide before officers managed to get him to surrender. He was in possession of a hunting rifle, semiautomatic rifle, and a shotgun, according to NBC News, and at least one of the weapons was said to have had a racial slur emblazoned in white paint.

Stephen Belongia, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Buffalo field office, explained during a press conference, “We are investigating this incident as both a hate crime and a case of racially-motivated violent extremism.”

According to The Daily Mail, the suspect had a 180 page manifesto on a Google Drive that was accessible to the public before being removed by the company. Reportedly, that particular Tops grocery store was chosen because it had “the highest black percentage” close to the suspects home in upstate New York. It further recounted the suspects inspiration, including the white supremacist Brenton Tarrant who had live-streamed a shooting at a New Zealand mosque in 2019.

Other parts of the manifesto are said to contain the suspects feelings on the “great replacement theory” that suggests there is a concerted effort to reduce the percentage of white people in the population. However, there remains mixed reporting on any political associations that the suspect may house as some say he opposed Democrats but others report him as being “authoritarian left wing.”

Regardless of his affiliation, Erie County Sheriff John Garcia was less couched in his conclusions than Belongia, saying: “This was pure evil. It was a straight-up racially motivated hate crime.”

Gendron was arraigned Saturday night and charged with first-degree murder charges while entering a not guilty plea.

Gov. Kathy Hochul (D-NY) weighed in on the shooting and reported closely monitoring the details and offered any assistance to local officials in need. She further noted that the crime was an “act of terrorism”

“And to see that sense of security shattered by an individual, a white supremacist who has engaged in an act of terrorism and will be prosecuted as such in a cold-hearted, cruel, calculating way, a military-style execution targeting people who simply want to buy groceries in a neighborhood store,” the governor said.

Hochul decried social media for the brief opportunity that the suspect was able to live-stream his content. However, in a statement to Fox News Digital, a spokesperson for the streaming service Twitch explained, “We are devastated to hear about the shooting that took place this afternoon in Buffalo, New York. Our hearts go out to the community impacted by this tragedy. Twitch as a zero-tolerance policy against violence of any kind and works swiftly to respond to all incidents. The user has been indefinitely suspended from our service, and we are taking all appropriate action, including monitoring for any accounts rebroadcasting this content.”

  1. Garland insists it’s white supremacy that is the problem. Extreme Racism is a human problem and comes in all colors. There’s plenty of proof of that.

  2. Okay, everyone, back off, sit down and calm down. This shooting was the fault of the shooter, not Democrats, not Republicans, not parents, not the school; the fault of the shooting was the psycho crazy teen. His “manifesto” is nothing but the rantings of a crazy person. Ignore it; concentrate on him; he is at fault, he is the bad guy. Find him, arrest him, try him and execute him! That will handle this situation. This is not politics, this is law enforcement. Period!

  3. I would say that most DO NOT agree with ANY choice of weapons other than a thorough cleansing of our Government, our Media, our SCHOOLS, our Entertainment, and our SPORTS of LEFTIST IDEOLOGY and DESTRUCTION! That young man has been subjected to at least TEN YEARS of CONSTANT ANTI-WHITE propaganda and DEMOcrat/RINO politics that have essentially DESTROYED what once was a GREAT NATION! While his assessments of the situations is mostly on the mark (and have been STATED in MANY online articles and by Members oF Congress), his TARGETS were NOT the people responsible! Those were INNOCENT victims.

  4. I make more then $12,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 11 to 12 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it…
    🙂 AND GOOD LUCK.:)

  5. Those MURDERED were NOT responsible for what he saw as attacks on the white race! Those were INNOCENT VICTIMS! It’s terribly SAD that a young person could have been subjected to so much racial HATE that he became mentally ill and then committed this horrible crime! Now were his assessments accurate?? Sadly, he wrote what MANY in the USA think! If you don’t live under a rock then you have been bombarded with ANTI-WHITE propaganda for quite a while – MOSTLY BEGINNING WITH THE “LIGHT BRINGER”! The libers/DEMOcrats/RINO’s have so thoroughly POISONED the minds of so many CHILDREN that some of them are completely BROKEN. This is exactly what the DEMOcrats desire! TRULY SICK PEOPLE!

  6. Of course it’s horrible and he probably was a white supremacist. But, let’s review:

    – In 2016 Micah Johnson killed five and wounded 9 Dallas police officers in a Black Supremacist attack
      – In February, Quintez Brown, a BLM activist attempted to assassinate Jewish Louisville Mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg
      – In November of 2021 black supremacist Darrell Brooks mowed down men, women and children at Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin by driving over them in his SUV. He killed 6 and wounded 60.
      -And last month, Frank James, a black supremacist, who posted “kill whitey” rants on his facebook page, shot 23 people on a N.Y. subway.

    What’s surprising is that it’s not worse in light of Biden, his Justice Department and all the left wing media’s continuing incendiary comments and lies about white supremacists being the biggest threat to the country. Unfortunately, it is likely to get worse and they continue to stoke racial animosity by constantly dividing the country and trying to pit one race against another.

    1. Absolutely correct. Incessantly and fatuously claiming that white men are the root of all evil, that all whites are racist, that the US is an evil racist country and that white lives don’t matter as much as other lives serves only to create racism where none existed before. But lots of people make big profits from race-baiting and lots of politicians gain lots of power and votes from promoting racial division.

      While this assailant is obviously demented, the increase in racial animosity created by the left is definitely a contributing factor in both white and black attacks. The Left is getting what they wanted.

  7. Where are all the “Blame the Gun” comments from democrats? Or is that not the case this time since the shooter is a white kid?
