On Saturday, thirteen individuals got shot, ten of whom died, in a racially motivated slaughter at a Buffalo, New York, supermarket. Buffalo Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia stated Saturday that 11 of the victims were Black and two were white. According to officials, the victims range from 20 to 86-years old. A former cop who attempted to stop the gunman, the mother of the city’s former fire commissioner, and a long-time substitute teacher were among those killed. The alleged shooter, an 18-year-old White guy, drove hours to attack the Tops Supermarket in a predominantly Black neighborhood. Investigators are also looking at a suspected manifesto up-loaded online Saturday with the shooting investigation. The manifesto author calls himself a fascist, a White supremacist, and an anti-Semite.
