A gunman opened fire and killed 10 people at a grocery store in Buffalo, New York, on Saturday in what authorities are calling a racially motivated shooting.
The manifesto, which appears to have been written by 18-year-old Payton Gendron, included a shared birth date and biographical details with the suspect in custody. The PDF was originally posted to Google Docs at 8:55 p.m. Thursday, two days before the shooting.
Gendron, of Conklin, New York, was arraigned Saturday evening in Buffalo City Court on one count of murder in the first degree, the Erie County District Attorney’s Office said.
He was remanded without bail, and a felony hearing was scheduled for Thursday morning, according to the office.
The manifesto, which has not been modified since it was posted on Thursday, includes elaborate details of a planned shooting. The document claims the suspect chose Buffalo because it was the city with the highest number of Black people in his vicinity.
The manifesto indicated the gunman was inspired by other mass shooters, including Dylann Roof, who killed nine Black church members during a Bible study session in South Carolina in 2015, and Brenton Tarrant, who killed 51 people at mosques in New Zealand in 2019.
Actually, this boy is not just a cold-blooded killer he’s also a plagiarist!
If you look at the two manifestos below you will surely notice that Payton’s manifesto is **LAZY COPYCAT** of the 2019 New Zealand mass shooter’s writings.
We can’t confirm why the manifesto is copied!
But from the video, I can tell that Payton was trained. It felt like I was watching a 1st person action movie scene. Will be interesting to see what we can dig up about his past. Of course he could have just been training on his own for years even do online conspiracies are linking him to some government agencies!
