Buffalo, New York, shooting at Tops supermarket: Fatalities reported

At least 10 people were killed after a gunman opened fire with a rifle at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, the Associated Press reported, citing law enforcement officials.

The shooting happened at a Tops Friendly Market in a crowded suburban area in the western New York city and the alleged gunman was taken into custody after the attack, Buffalo police said. 

Ten people were killed, two law enforcement officials told the AP. They were not permitted to speak publicly on the matter and did so on the condition of anonymity. Further details on the number of people shot and their conditions weren’t immediately available.

The gunman entered the supermarket with a rifle and opened fire, one of the officials told the AP. Investigators believe the man may have been livestreaming the shooting and were looking into whether he had posted a manifesto online, the official said.
