Erie County District Attorney John Flynn indicated during a TmZ Blog interview that domestic terrorism charges could be filed against the 18-year-old who allegedly opened fire at a grocery store on Saturday afternoon, killing 10 people and injuring three others.

Buffalo Police Department Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia said that the individual, later identified as Payton Gendron, 18, allegedly committed the shooting while live-streaming it on a social media platform at Tops Friendly Market.

During a press conference on Sunday, officials said they believe the shooting was racially motivated, pointing to a roughly 180-page manifesto that the shooter wrote and posted before allegedly shooting a total of 13 people. The manifesto included a plan for the attack.

Gendron wrote in the manifesto that he identifies as a White Supremacist, stating that he fears White people are in the process of being replaced by people of other races.

Eleven of the victims in the attack are Black and two of them are White, according to authorities.

Flynn said during an interview with TmZ Blog on Sunday that domestic terrorism charges are being considered in addition to the first-degree murder charges that the 18-year-old faces.

“We’re looking at potentially multiple additional charges to be filed,” Flynn said. “We are looking at domestic terrorism charges, we are looking at hate crime charges, there’s actually a charge in New York State called domestic terrorism motivated by hate. So, that charge right there encompasses the actual terrorism and the hate charge together, all in one charge.”

Gendron was charged with first-degree murder and pleaded not guilty in front of a judge on Saturday evening.

The live-streaming platform that was used in the attack was later identified as Twitch. A spokesperson for the company told TmZ Blog that the video was taken down two minutes after the violence began, adding that the company will work with law enforcement during the course of their investigation.
