Last Saturday Payton Gendron
The same hand was inside a retail establishment in Buffalo 430 miles away from his house, checking on the setting of a semi-automatic rifle located beside several magazines of ammunition matching the intended caliber of the gun and the duration of the purchase.

The theories on this subject stemmed from France, but have a large congregation in the United States after inspiration from prominent Republicans and Fox News show host Tucker Carlson. Before Gendron was arrested, he murdered 10 Black people and injured three others in the supermarket on Jefferson Avenue, in the eastern part of Buffalo.
The gunman arrayed himself in various military and paramilitary gear, including a bulletproof vest and a helmet. He also sported white supremacist symbols that had been written on his military vest.

Snow had stopped falling but the ground was still wet. Gendron was lying on the porch in the dark, but his house’s porch lights on. No one opened the door.
At some time, another individual declined transaminases to give any information about his relatives. I completely trust their discretion, he said.
