New York State Police said in a tweet on Saturday afternoon that they were at the scene of a “mass shooting” at a Buffalo grocery store.

At a news conference, Buffalo Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia said 13 people were shot and 10 people died as a result of the shooting, which is being investigated as a hate crime.

Gramaglia said an 18-year-old white man allegedly carried out the shooting and was streaming it live online.
