10 killed in 'racially motivated' supermarket shooting in Buffalo, police say

11 Black victims and 2 white victims were shot at a grocery store by an alleged gunman.

A teenage gunman in military-style clothing opened fire with a rifle at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, on Saturday, killing 10 and wounding 3 before surrendering to police.

The 18-year-old white gunman was wearing body armour and military-style clothing when he opened fire at a Tops Friendly Market about 2.30pm, with a camera attached to his helmet.

He was later arraigned for murder before a judge in a paper medical gown.

"He left his car." Heavy-armed. He was armed. His helmet was tactical. “He was livestreaming what he was doing with a webcam,” said New York City Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia.

The shooting was broadcast live on Twitch for at least two minutes before the service cut him off.

Gramaglia said the gunman initially killed three people outside the store. The bullet hit the gunman's bulletproof vest and had no effect, Gramaglia said. In the process, he killed a security guard.
