A grand jury has indicted the alleged Buffalo supermarket shooter on charges including domestic terrorism, and authorities are further investigating the possibility of hate crime charges.
Payton Gendron is accused of shooting 10 people at a Buffalo supermarket, all of whom were black. He has been in custody since the shooting occurred on May 14, and is scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday in Erie County Court, reports the Washington Post.
Gendron is also being charged with murder and attempted murder as a hate crime and weapons possession.
Gendron allegedly posted his racist motivations across several pages across the web, posting them online before shooting.
Gendron's attorney, Brian Parker, told press that he has not seen the indictment and could not comment. He also said that prosecution and defense attorneys have been barred from discussing the case publicly by a judge.
Gendron has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
