    Shootings: Here are the victims of the ‘racially motivated attack’ in US

    Victims of the Buffalo mass shooting who all lost their lives after a gunman attacked a local supermarket have been identified. 

    An 18-year-old white suspect shot 13 people, 11 of whom are Black, in a racially motivated attack on Saturday, police said.

    Ten people, all of whom were Black, were killed in a mass shooting at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, on Saturday, in an attack authorities are calling a “racially motivated hate crime.”

    The victims included four grocery store employees as well as six customers, several of them regulars at the store, according to the Buffalo Police Department and those who knew them.

    Three others were wounded in the shooting, two of whom have been treated and released from the hospital, police said.
