Victims’ Families Speak Out at Sentencing of Buffalo Market Gunman

On Tuesday, February 16th, the Buffalo, New York community gathered to witness the sentencing of the gunman responsible for a massacre that took place at a local grocery store in 2021. The victims’ kin spoke during the sentencing, expressing their grief and sorrow for the lives lost in the tragedy.

The shooter, who had been found guilty on multiple counts of murder and attempted murder, received a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole. During the sentencing, one man rushed at the shooter in an emotional outburst, prompting the judge to call for order.

The Buffalo massacre was not the first of its kind in the city. In the past, there have been multiple hate crimes, including the .22 Caliber Killer case in which a man was convicted of murdering two African American men in 1993.

The Buffalo community has been struggling to heal from the tragedy and many are hoping that the sentencing of the shooter will bring some closure to the victims’ families.
