Buffalo Massacre



Buffalo, New York - Payton Gendron killed 10 Black Americans at a grocery store. Gendron was taken alive by the police workers of the City of Buffalo.

Gendron prepared for the attack for weeks in advance. The day before, he spoke with a Black immigrant for more than an hour. The immigrant noticed that Gendron looked 'twitchy' but called him a 'genius.'

The next day, Gendron returned. He was armed with an AR-15 (assault rifle) and body armor. His murdering began in the parking lot, of the Tops grocery store. There, he shot four people. Gendron then shot into the store.

A Black American security guard shot numerous rounds at Gendron. The body armor protected Gendron, who shot and killed the security guard.

Once inside the store, Gendron continued to target Black Americans. He passed a white man and told him 'Sorry.' Gendron then killed Black Americans he had wounded earlier.

Once the rampage was over, 13 were shot and only 3 survived. Gendron wrote a manifesto that claimed the reason for the attack was due to The Great Replacement Theory.

This theory states that immigrants will be used to win elections. Gendron's victims were not immigrants.
