President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden will travel to Buffalo, New York, after an 18-year-old allegedly opened fire at a grocery store on Saturday afternoon, killing 10 people and injuring three others.
The White House announced that the trip will be made on Tuesday.
“On Tuesday, May 17, the President and the First Lady will travel to Buffalo, New York to grieve with the community that lost ten lives in a senseless and horrific mass shooting,” the White House said in a statement.
Buffalo Police Department Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia said on Saturday that an 18-year-old White male allegedly committed the shooting at Tops Friendly Market and was live-streaming it on an online social media platform, which officials later identified as Twitch. The grocery store is located in a predominately Black neighborhood in the city.
A spokesperson for Twitch told Fox News that the video was taken down two minutes after the violence began.
The shooter, identified as Payton Gendron, 18, traveled from Conklin, New York, to Buffalo. The drive from Conklin to Buffalo is almost three and a half hours.
