President Joe Biden, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul, and local lawmakers were among those who reacted to a mass shooting in Buffalo Saturday afternoon, where a self-described white supremacist killed 10 people and injured three others.
Payton Gendron, 18, was arrested for carrying out the shooting incident, which he reportedly live-streamed on the video game streaming platform Twitch, authorities said.
In a statement, Gov. Kathy Hochul said she hopes Gramaglia will be held accountable for his action, including imprisonment for “the rest of his days.”
“It is my sincere hope that this individual, this white supremacist who just perpetrated a hate crime on an innocent community, will spend the rest of his days behind bars. And heaven help him in the next world as well,” Hochul said.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre released a statement saying Biden and First Lady Jill Biden were aware of the shooting incident and were praying for those affected.
“The President has been briefed by his Homeland Security Advisor on the horrific shooting in Buffalo, NY this afternoon.

President Biden later released a statement later honoring the law enforcement members who “took immediate action” to end the shooting spree.
“Tonight, we grieve for the families of ten people whose lives were senselessly taken and everyone who is suffering the physical and emotional wounds of this horrific shooting. We are grateful for the bravery of members of law enforcement and other first responders who took immediate action to try to protect and save lives,” Biden said. “The First Lady and I are praying for the victims and their families, and hearts all across this country are with the people of Buffalo.”
