Topline

At least 10 people were killed Saturday at a grocery store in Buffalo, New York, according to multiple reports, and Buffalo Police said a suspect was apprehended.

Key Facts

The Associated Press and the Buffalo News report at least three others were injured after a man armed with a rifle and clad in body armor walked into a Tops Friendly Market and opened fire, citing anonymous law enforcement sources.

One of the deceased is a retired Buffalo police officer who was working as a security guard at the store, the Buffalo News reports.

An unnamed Buffalo police official told the Buffalo News the scene was like “walking onto a horror movie, but everything is real,” adding “it is armageddon-like.”

The Associated Press and the Buffalo News report investigators are looking into whether the alleged shooter livestreamed the shooting and posted a manifesto online prior to the attack.

The Buffalo Police Department said in a tweet officers were on scene at a Tops location in northeast Buffalo around 3:30 p.m.

Buffalo Police have not confirmed how many people were injured in the shooting and did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Forbes.

What We Don’t Know

Police have not released information on the suspected shooter’s motive in the attack.

Crucial Quote

“I am closely monitoring the shooting at a grocery store in Buffalo,” New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said in a tweet, adding state officials have offered assistance to officials in Buffalo.

Tangent

The shooting in Buffalo came over a year after a shooting at a King Soopers grocery store in Boulder, Colorado, left 10 people dead. The suspect in the Boulder shooting was deemed incompetent to stand trial in March.
