Ten people were killed in a “mass shooting” at a supermarket in Buffalo, the second-largest city in the state of New York, police said on Saturday.

Another three were injured in the attack at the Tops Friendly Market, Buffalo Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia said.

The FBI said they were investigating a “hate crime” and “racially motivated extremism.”

A heavily armed, 18-year-old white man entered the supermarket and opened fire, authorities said.

The suspected gunman in Saturday’s attack on Tops Friendly Market was identified as Payton Gendron, of Conklin, New York about 200 miles (320 kilometers) southeast of Buffalo.

Later in the day, he appeared before a judge in a paper medical gown and was arraigned on a murder charge.

“It is my sincere hope that this individual, this white supremacist who just perpetrated a hate crime on an innocent community, will spend the rest of his days behind bars. And heaven help him in the next world as well,” said Gov. Kathy Hochul, speaking near the scene of the attack.

Investigators believe the man may have been live-streaming the shooting. Witnesses reported he was wearing military-style clothing and body armor and carrying a rifle.

The supermarket is in a predominately African-American neighborhood, and the surrounding area is primarily residential.
