New York/UNI: At least ten people were killed by a gunman in a supermarket in Buffalo, New York State, local media reports said.

The gunman wore military-style clothing and body armor with a rifle and opened fire after entering the supermarket located in a neighbourhood dominated by black people, according to a report by The Associated Press.

The shooter has been taken into custody, tweeted Buffalo Police Department.

"The man who carried out the shooting in the city of Buffalo, where ten people were killed, was charged with first-degree murder, the article that provides for life imprisonment, Erie County District Attorney John Flynn said on Saturday.

"This individual has been arraigned on murder in the first degree, which is the highest charge — murder charge in New York state. It carries with it a sentence of life without parole, the severest punishment we have a New York state.

"He was remanded. The judge ordered a forensic examination. A felony hearing will now take place in five days. And then the investigation continues," Flynn said at a press conference.

According to Flynn, authorities are also evaluating the possibility of charging the Buffalo shooter with terrorism.
