In a racially motivated attack on Saturday, an 18-year-old white suspect shot 13 individuals, 11 of whom were black, authorities said.

A mass shooting at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, on Saturday murdered ten people, all of whom were black, in what officials are calling a "racially motivated hate crime."
