The white man accused of killing 10 Black people in a racist massacre at a Buffalo supermarket appeared briefly in court Thursday and returned to jail after he was indicted by a grand jury.
As authorities, including the FBI, investigate the possibility of hate crime and terrorism charges, Payton Gendron, 18, faces a first-degree murder charge in the Saturday attack that authorities say targeted a predominantly Black community. Of the 10 people killed and three injured in the shooting, 11 were Black, police said.
Gendron has been accused of being inspired by a racist theory that fueled the carnage after he posted hundreds of pages of documents detailing his motivations and plans to online discussion platforms.
