US President Joe Biden will visit Buffalo, New York Tuesday after 10 people were shot and killed in an alleged racist attack at a grocery store there, the White House said Sunday.

“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 statement said.

Wearing heavy body armor and wielding an AR-15 assault rifle, the shooter killed 10 people and wounded three others — almost all of them Black — before threatening to turn the gun on himself. Police said officers talked the gunman down before arresting him.

The suspect, identified as Payton Gendron, was arraigned late Saturday on a single count of first-degree murder and held without bail, the Erie County district attorney’s office said. He pleaded not guilty.

Parishioners were attending a banquet following a morning church service when the gunman began his rampage, authorities said.
