An 18-year-old gunman opened fire at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, on Saturday, killing 10 people and injuring three more people, most of them Black, in what President Biden is calling an act of “hate-filled domestic terrorism.”

The mass shooting is one of the deadliest racially-motivated massacres in recent American history, and is being investigated as a hate crime. The suspect, who live streamed his attack, is believed to be the author of a manifesto that laid out his plans in detail and repeatedly cited something called the “great replacement” theory, a false and racist ideology that, simply put, believes there’s a secret cabal plotting to diminish white people. According to CNN, the suspect had plans to shoot more Black people at another store.

Thirteen victims, ages 20 to 86, were shot in the attack. Of those 13 people, 11 were Black and two were white. Among those killed are 55-year-old retired Buffalo Police officer Aaron Salter, Buffalo’s 86-year-old former Fire Commissioner Ruth Whitfield, and 77-year-old grandmother Pearl Young, who reportedly ran a food pantry. According to Buffalo Police, the three who survived the shooting were all taken to a local hospital. Two have since been released, and one is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries

Here’s how you can help the victims of the shooting and the surrounding community.
