People gather outside of Tops market on May 15, 2022, in Buffalo, New York. A gunman opened fire at the store, killing 10 people and wounding another three. Suspect Payton Gendron was taken into custody and charged with first-degree murder. U.S. Attorney Merrick Garland released a statement, saying the U.S. Department of Justice is investigating the shooting “as a hate crime and an act of racially-motivated violent extremism”.
