Victims of mass shooting at Buffalo supermarket remembered one month on

Bereaved families and relatives on Tuesday renewed their mourning for victims of a mass shooting one month ago at a supermarket in the US state of New York.

A white gunman opened fire at the supermarket in a predominantly Black neighborhood in Buffalo on May 14, killing 10 people. A total of 13 people were shot in the incident. Among them were 11 African Americans.

The gunman posted a white supremacist manifesto online before the incident. He has been indicted on murder, terrorism and hate crime charges.

Bereaved families and others on Tuesday attended a memorial ceremony to remember the victims, precisely a month after the incident.

The names of the victims were read out, before participants observed a moment of silence at the exact time the shooting occurred.

A man whose mother was killed said he had never thought of losing his mother in a terror attack, and his anger has not eased. He added that if he could meet his mother again he would tell her how much he loved her.

There has been a spate of mass shootings in the US, including hate attacks. The Department of Homeland Security is cautioning for possible increases of racially or politically-motivated crimes. It warns such violence targeted those with different opinions or backgrounds will likely increase ahead of the mid-term elections in November.
