Buffalo, New York, Supermarket Shooting: “Several people” were shot dead at Tops Friendly Market

BUFFALO, NY — Several people were shot dead at a convenience store in Buffalo, New York, on Saturday afternoon, police there tweeted, adding that the alleged gunman is in custody.

Details of the number of people shot at Tops Friendly Market and their conditions were not immediately available.

Police officials and a spokesman for the supermarket chain did not immediately respond to news from The Associated Press for comment.

Police cordoned off the block lined with spectators, and yellow police tape surrounded the entire parking lot. Mayor Byron Brown was at the scene late Saturday afternoon expecting to address the media.

Gov. Kathy Hochul tweeted that she was “closely monitoring the shooting at a grocery store in Buffalo, her hometown.” She said state officials have offered assistance to local authorities.

The Erie County Sheriff’s Office took to social media to say it has ordered all available employees to assist the Buffalo Police Department.
