    Officials announced the suspected gunman was 18-year-old Payton Gendron.


    Governor Hochul has criticized social media sites for promoting environments that allow hate groups to spread and share harmful information.

    During a press conference, Garcia called the alleged shooter “pure evil.”

    “It was a racially motivated hate crime by someone outside of our community, outside of the town of good neighbors … who came into our community and tried to do this evil to us.”

    Officials said 11 of the victims were black and two were white.


    The judge refused bail for the alleged shooter because his attorney requested a forensic examination. Another hearing will be held on Thursday morning.


    Buffalo police entered the store and confronted the suspect, Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia said at a news conference.

    He held the gun to his own neck, but two officers were able to persuade him to drop the gun and surrender.


    The alleged shooter drove five hours and approximately 200 miles from his home in Conklin, New York to commit the crime.


    The crime is being investigated as a case of racially motivated violent extremism.

    Hate crimes are handled by the federal government. This could result in two separate investigations and trials, one by the state and one by the federal government.

    Right now, the maximum penalty New York State could impose is life imprisonment without parole.

    The federal court could ask for the death penalty. For example, the Boston Marathon bomber received the death penalty.


    Mayor Byron Brown called the suspected shooter a “bad idiot” during an interview with a local news outlet.

    “He came for the blacks. He drove here for blacks. I’m not taking care of him right now, I’m taking care of the families [and] their mothers are not coming home tonight.”


    The alleged shooter was charged around 7.30am on Saturday night.

    He was wearing a mask and paper coat and was barefoot when the judge charged him with first-degree murder.

    His attorneys said he pleaded not guilty. Buffalo mass shooting LIVE news – New York victims named & Gov. Kathy Hochul slams Twitch over Payton Gendron vid
