Buffalo supermarket shooter was radicalized by New Zealand mosque killer

The man accused of killing 10 people at a supermarket in Buffalo on Saturday was influenced by a New Zealand white supremacist who murdered dozens of people in a pair of shootings three years ago, according to a 180-page manifesto posted online.

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): The man accused of killing 10 people at a supermarket in Buffalo on Saturday was influenced by a New Zealand white supremacist who murdered dozens of people in a pair of shootings three years ago, according to a 180-page manifesto posted online.

Payton Gendron, 18, wrote a terrifyingly cold “questions and answers” section in the manifesto that spelled out the white nationalist beliefs that he said led him to plot the Buffalo attack.

He said the “particular person that radicalized (him) the most” was Brenton Tarrant, the man who murdered 51 people in shootings at two New Zealand mosques in 2019.

The manifesto also named several other people who inspired Gendron, including Dylann Roof, the young man who killed nine Black people at a church in South Carolina in 2015, and Anders Breivik, the Norwegian man who killed 77 people in 2011.

In the manifesto, Gendron said he lived his entire life in Southern New York. He described himself as an engineering student at SUNY Broome.

Police said the killer drove from “hours away” to carry out the attack. Gendron is reported to live in Conklin, N.Y., about a three-and-a-half hour drive from Buffalo.
