10 dead in US shooting livestreamed on Twitch

A man in military-style gear entered a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, and began firing a rifle

A mass-shooting incident occurred early on Saturday afternoon in Buffalo, the second-largest city in the state of New York.

A gunman armed with a rifle entered a local supermarket, opening fire on the shoppers. The man, donning military-style gear, was apparently acting alone, local media have reported, citing law enforcement.

“It’s like walking onto a horror movie, but everything is real,” a police officer at the scene was quoted as saying by the Buffalo News.

Buffalo police commissioner said a total of 13 people were shot, 10 killed at the scene. The gunman was detained.

The attacker reportedly live-streamed the shooting spree on Twitch streaming platform. Several graphic screenshots purportedly taken from the stream, showing a body lying on the floor and a woman getting shot in her head, are circulating online.
