Buffalo shooting: Gunman deliberately sought black victims


Authorities say the man suspected of shooting dead 10 people at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, deliberately sought a site with a high black population.

Police say the suspect, 18 year old Payton Gendron, drove more than 320 km (200 miles) to carry out the attack.

The attack is being investigated as an act of racially motivated violent extremism.

Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown said the suspect arrived intending to take “as many black lives as possible”.
