Buffalo mass shooting latest updates
Ten people are dead and a suspect is in custody after a gunman with a rifle and body armour opened fire at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York on 14 五月, believed to be one of the deadliest racist massacres in recent American history, and the deadliest mass shooting in the US in 2022.
The shooting took place at Tops Friendly Market in the 1200 block of Jefferson Avenue in the state’s second-largest city, in a predominantly Black neighbourhood that authorities believe the suspect had specifically targeted. Thirteen people in total were shot. Among the victims, 11 were Black.
Close-up shots from a video of Saturday’s attack, which police say was filmed by the gunman himself, show the N-word and the number 14 — a known 白人至上主義者 code — written on the barrel of the gun in white paint.
A “manifesto” has been found online, connected to the 18-year-old suspect Payton Gendron, that references racist and white nationalist tropes and far-right conspiracy theories.
President Joe Biden arrived in Buffalo on Tuesday to “grieve” with the community and delivered remarks where he called Saturday’s attack “straightforward terrorism”.
“Hate will not prevail, white supremacy will not have the last word,” he said during a speech at a Buffalo community centre.

It seems clear that the Buffalo shooting was a hate crime and an act of terrorism. It’s also clear that extreme right-wing ideologies are becoming an increasingly big problem for the 我ら, and indeed for the west.

McVeigh and Nichols were paranoid, libertarian right-wingers who feared that the government wanted to control private citizens.

About half an hour before shooting began at the Tops market in Buffalo, charged gunman Payton Gendron shared his plans with others in a Discord chatroom, none of whom appeared to alert law enforcement.
