The United States has a bloodstain caused by another mass shooting.
Now, it was a supermarket in Buffalo, New York.
At least 10 people were killed Saturday afternoon in a shooting at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, law enforcement officials reported.
Buffalo police said earlier Saturday afternoon that the alleged shooter, who was not identified, was in custody.
The tragedy happened at Tops Friendly Market.
The gunman entered the supermarket with a rifle and opened fire, one of the officials said.
Investigators believe the man may have been live streaming the shooting and were looking into whether he had posted a manifesto online, the official said.
The official cautioned the investigation was in its preliminary stages and that authorities hadn’t yet discerned a clear motive, but were investigating whether the shooting was racially motivated.
Witnesses reported the gunman was wearing military-style clothing and body armor, one of the officials said.
Two witnesses saw the shooter exiting. They described him as a white male in his late teens or early twenties sporting full camo, a black helmet, and what appeared to be a rifle.
“He was standing there with the gun to his chin. We were like what the heck is going on? Why does this kid have a gun to his face?,” one of the witnesses said.
“He ripped off his helmet, dropped his gun, and was tackled by the police.”
