Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown led a briefing in front of the Tops Grocery store on Friday morning. The “evidence collection phase in the Buffalo grocery store massacre is finished.”
Last weekend 18-year-old white male, Payton Gendron open fired in a deadly mass shooting and injured three and killed ten people at the Tops Grocery store. The pre planned act of violence is being called a racially motivated attack against Black people aka Hate Crime. After being taken into custody Gendron appeared in Buffalo City Court on Thursday and is charged with first-degree murder.
U.S. Attorney Trini Ross said the Justice Department is on top of this case. Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco said the department will bring “every resource to bear to respond and to seek justice.” Garland added — “All people in this country should be able to live without fear of being attacked or harassed because of where they are from, what they look like, whom they love or how they worship.”
The GoFundMe page created to help those impacted by the mass shooting in Buffalo, New York has reached an impressive milestone. On Thursday, the page surpassed a million dollars just three days after the page started.
