Today marks a dark day in American history and for the residents of the city of Buffalo, an 18-year-old man shot and killed 10 people in a predominantly black neighborhood of New York State. Authorities have termed the nature of the attack as racially motivated. The man who has been identified as Payton Gendron began firing in a store’s car parking before entering and continuing to shoot people. What is more disturbing is that he streamed this act of terrorism online.

Following the attack, President Joe Biden condemned the attack as an “Abhorrent” act. As per reports, the attacker shouted racial slurs while shooting and had a racial slur written on his weapon as well. He posted a manifesto that promoted racist language and ideas online as per BBC. The act not only shocked the city of Buffalo but also the members of the Buffalo Bills team who were left speechless.
