US President Joe Biden and his wife Jill paid tribute to the victims of the latest US shooting in Buffalo, New York.
Their first stop was at a makeshift memorial outside the supermarket where the attack took place.
A gunman opened fire on Saturday, killing 10 people in what was believed to be a racially motivated hate crime.
In a speech at a nearby community center, Biden called for tougher gun laws and urged Americans to reject racism and embrace the nation’s diversity.
“Jill and I bring this message to you from deep within our nation’s soul,” Biden said. “In America evil will not win, I promise you. Hatred will not prevail and white supremacy will not have the last laugh.”
The president went on to say that the 18-year-old suspect, who identified himself as a fascist and white nationalist in a document posted online, was from “a hateful minority”.
