Buffalo suspect indicted in mass killing: DA

STORY: An 18-year-old suspect has been indicted on charges he gunned down 10 Black residents in a Buffalo, New York supermarket last month.

The local district attorney’s office said Peyton Gendron will appear in court on Thursday, although it declined to list the charges.

Gendron has been in custody since the May 14th shooting.

Prosecutors say the teenager targeted Black people when he opened fire at a Tops Friendly Markets store with a semi-automatic, assault-style rifle.

The rampage was streamed live.

According to U.S. media reports, Gendron has been charged on 25 counts of murder and domestic terrorism.

He has pleaded not guilty.

The deadly rampage is just one in a recent series of mass shootings across the United States

FBI data show that last year alone, the US faced 61 "active shooter" incidents in schools and other places.
