The suspect Payton Gendron, of Conklin, a New York state community about 200 miles (320 kilometers) southeast of Buffalo, has opened fire at a supermarket in a Black neighbourhood in the US city of Buffalo, killing ten people in what authorities called an act of “racially motivated violent extremism”.
Three others were wounded in the attack at the Tops Friendly Market on Saturday.
Gendron has now been arraigned on a charge of first degree murder, which carries a sentence of life without parole. He is being held without bail.
