“We are investigating this incident as a hate crime and racially motivated violent extremism case,” Stephen Bilongia, the special agent in charge of the FBI’s office in Buffalo, said at a news conference.

According to the police, “ten people were killed” and three others were injured. They included 11 people, black and two white, in this predominantly African-American neighborhood of Buffalo.

John Garcia, the Erie County Sheriff, called the attack a “racially motivated hate crime” perpetrated by “evil incarnate.”

American media also reported a racist “manifesto” that was to be broadcast on the Internet and social networks, as is often the case with crimes committed by white supremacists.

In front of the press, local district attorney John Flynn has already announced that the suspect will be charged with premeditated murder.

Buffalo’s mayor, who is African American, Byron Brown, explained on local television New York One that the alleged killer had traveled several hours to commit his crime in a predominantly black neighborhood of Buffalo.
