Yesterday was one of the bloodiest days in the history of Buffalo New York, a confessed White supremacist terrorist drove 200 miles, to the small town Black community and began opening fire indiscriminately.
Payton Gendron, a hard core White supremacist, murdered at least 10 people at the grocery store in store in Buffalo, New York, on Saturday, May 14, 2022, while live-streaming video.
According to authorities, 11 of the 13 victims who were shot were Black and two were white. The victims include four store employees. Three others were wounded.
Payton was taken into custody at the scene – unharmed, Buffalo Police said. He is facing first-degree murder charges in New York state court and could also face federal charges, including hate crimes, officials said.
Here are the names of the victims:
Ruth was an 86 year told grandmother.
Aaron Salter Jr.
Aaron Salter was a retired Buffalo police officer and beloved security guard.
Perly, 77, was a grandmother, and a beloved figure in the community.
The Buffalo News, which confirmed that Katherine Massey was among the victims, reported that she “had gone to the store to pick up some groceries.”
“She was a beautiful soul,” her sister, Barbara Massey, told the newspaper.
