In the United States, an 18-year-old white gunman shot 10 people to death and injured three on Saturday at a grocery store in a Black neighborhood area of New York.

Later, he surrendered to the police. Authorities called it an act of racially motivated violent extremism. Authorities said the suspect was armed with an assault-style rifle and appeared to have acted alone.

News agencies report that eleven of the 13 people struck by gunfire were Black. The two others were white.

Court papers named the

suspect as Payton Gendron of Conklin, a town in New York’s Southern Tier region near the Pennsylvania border.

Stephen Belongia, the FBI special agent in charge of the bureau’s Buffalo field office, said the attack would be investigated both as a hate crime and as an act of racially motivated violent extremism under federal law.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul told a news conference that she was dismayed that the killer managed to live-stream his attack on social media.
