A SUSPECTED mass shooter who allegedly killed ten people at a Buffalo grocery store is set to face trial in New York tonight, facing ‘life without parole’ if convicted.
The helmet-wearing suspect donned a bulletproof vest and was carrying an assault weapon when he entered Tops Friendly Market shortly after 2.30pm and opened fire on May 14, 2022.
During the bloody rampage, the 18-year-old white suspect opened fire, killing 10 people and injuring three in what police described as a racially motivated attack, which was broadcast live on social media.
The suspect, who is a few hours from the county grocery store, is currently in custody and has not been named. President Joe Biden and the first lady have been briefed and are “praying” for the victims, reports say.
A total of 13 people were shot, ten victims died of their wounds and three were injured. Eleven of the 13 victims were African American and two were white, police told reporters.
