A white supremacist killed 10 people in a Buffalo store.

The United States is suffering from a shortage of supplies in some areas. There is one thing that, pandemic or not, always has a good supply: weapons.

Ten people died this Saturday and three more were injured when an 18-year-old white supremacist gunman opened fire at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York. The alleged perpetrator was arrested abroad and the case is being investigated as a case of racial hatred and terrorism.

The area in which this institution is located is called Tops, mostly inhabited by African Americans. “Everything points to the fact that he came with a mission. He entered and began to shoot, without saying anything, calmly. People ran and screamed desperately, ”said one of the witnesses inside. Buffalo Police Chief Joseph Gramaglia said the shooter was broadcasting his misdeed.

The shooter drove for several hours and operated in a supermarket frequented by blacks.

It was circulated on the Internet that the author was a supremacist who circulated a manifesto stating that he was guided by the “white replacement theory”. This conspiracy involves Democrats getting blacks or Hispanics to vote for them and thereby undermining white power. Tucker Carlson, the top ideologue of the far right and a top Fox star, is one of the main promulgators of this theory from his privileged pulpit, which former President Donald Trump favored among his supporters.

The county sheriff did not want to confirm the authenticity of this manifesto, but specified that he was accused of a racial crime. his actions are motivated by “racial hatred,” he stressed.

The author is not from Buffalo. Although he is from upstate New York, he had to travel there for several hours. Heavily armed and equipped in a military way, he shot four people in the parking lot, of whom only one survived. Inside, he killed six more and wounded two. Four of the dead are employees, six are customers. Only two of the dead are white, both employees.

Grady Lewis was about to enter the store when he heard gunshots. He looked inside and saw that there was a guy firing an AR-15. “I saw him come out and he followed me. I started screaming, got scared, but he got out, left the weapon, took off his vest, case and knelt down to be stopped, ”he said.

According to the descriptions of the witnesses, the shooter was wearing a camouflage uniform, a vest, a black helmet and a rifle. “He was there, with a rifle on his chin, and we were wondering what the hell was going on with this young man with a gun to his face,” Bredin Kephart, 20, told the AP, talking about the scene of his surrender.

A video circulating online showed a young man handcuffed and put into a police car. There were bodies all around on the sidewalk. The shooting happened around 2:30 p.m. this Saturday, a day and time when many families shop and enjoy themselves. The police saw the plan.
