Amateur video captures the aftermath of a supermarket shooting

STORY: Eleven of the 13 people shot were black, officials said, calling it a hate crime and an act of “racially motivated violent extremism”. Authorities said the 18-year-old suspect, who was armed with an assault-style rifle and wearing a body armor, drove to a black neighborhood in Buffalo from his home in New York County ” at hours” to target the store in an attack it broadcast on the internet. He appears to have acted alone and when confronted by police after the shooting he had held the gun to his own neck before officers persuaded him to surrender.
