Shooting at an American supermarket left many people dead

On Twitter, the Buffalo Police Department said many people were shot but did not specify the number. One suspect has been arrested.

Meanwhile, one of the officials said, the subject entered the supermarket with a rifle and opened fire. The investigation is in its preliminary stages and authorities have yet to identify a clear motive, and are investigating the possibility that the shooting was motivated by racism. The supermarket where the incident happened is located in a predominantly black residential area. Investigators believe the man may have live-streamed the shooting on social media.

The Buffalo Police Department on the same day confirmed the gunman was “arrested” after police successfully persuaded him to surrender.
