The fatal shooting in Buffalo, New York, which claimed the lives of ten people on May 14, 2022, has been traced back to an 18-year-old white man who apparently planned the attack on Discord before streaming the horrific events on Twitch. The shooter, Payton Gendron, has been arrested by police who described his actions as racial prejudice. Gendron has been charged with multiple murders.
According to the Associated Press, Gendron went up to the supermarket in a vehicle where he shot four people in the parking lot, killing three people at random. During a press conference, Gendron was wearing tactical gear, a tactical helmet, and a camera.
Witnesses describe how Gendron was just coming into the parking lot while he was leaving the Tops Friendly Market location. Kephart said, "We were like what the heck is going on," but explained how he removed his helmet, dropped his rifle, and was tackled by the cops.
According to Gendron, he published a wide spectrum of racist viewpoints and views that suggest 4chan as the basis of his radicalization. Through informationgraphics, hitposts, and memes, the White race is dying out, the average black takes $700,000 from taxpayers in their lifetime, and the Jews and the elite were also responsible for this. In the manifesto, Gendron apparently discussed his intentions with friends and followers.
This is the worst nightmare that any community can endure, and we are hurting and we are seeingthing right now, according to Mayor Byron Brown during a press conference. The depth of pain that families are experiencing and that we all of us are experiencing right now cannot be explained.
Twitch was quick to issue a statement on the matter. This afternoon, we are stranded to hear about the shooting in Buffalo, New York. Our hearts go out to the victims of this tragedy, according to Twitch. We are constantly taking appropriate measures to protect the user from being removed from our service.
