Buffalo Mass Shooter Sentenced to Life in Prison

He killed 10 Black people

The gunman who killed 10 Black people in a shooting rampage at a Buffalo supermarket in May was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison without the possibility of parole at an emotional hearing during which he faced recriminations and anger from the victims’ families.

One unidentified man rushed at the suspect during the hearing before being restrained by law enforcement officers in the courtroom.

Payton Gendron, 19, who is White, planned the attack for months, targeting the Tops Friendly Markets in a predominantly Black neighborhood of Buffalo, according to his online writings, which cited white supremacist conspiracy theories and anti-semitic rants.
