Ten people were killed by gunfire inside a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, while the perpetrator was arrested, according to The Buffalo News, citing police sources.

“Ten people were killed by a gunman wearing a bulletproof vest and a carbine, while three others were injured, two of them seriously,” the newspaper reported, citing a police official.

At least five bodies were found in the parking lot, while the other victims were inside the store, according to the same source.

A police source told the newspaper that the perpetrator was equipped with a camera and was wearing a bulletproof vest with a “military type helmet”. Authorities are investigating whether the perpetrator was broadcasting the attack live, according to some on social media.

“It’s like being in a horror movie, but it’s all true,” a police officer told the Buffalo newspaper.

US President Joe Biden has been informed of the deadly attack and is praying for the victims, a White House spokesman said.
