At least eight people were killed and several are injured after a gunman opened fire inside a Buffalo supermarket on Saturday while livestreaming.

The gunman opened fire inside the Tops supermarket, at 1275 Jefferson Avenue, at about 2.30pm, shooting dead at least eight people, NBC reported.

The suspect, filmed wearing a military uniform, has been taken into custody by the Buffalo Police Department.

The video of the arrest seen by DailyMail.com shows police cuffing the suspect and trying to get people away from the scene as several bodies lie motionless on the ground.

‘A shooter, it’s a mass shooter type s***,’ one of the onlookers says as police and emergency responders detain the man in the military uniform.

‘Damn, look at him, a young boy,’ the onlooker adds as he comments on one of the bodies.

Police then instruct the onlookers to back up as they take control of the situation.

Details on the exact number of people shot at the Tops Friendly Market and their conditions weren’t immediately available, and the suspect has not been identified.

Eric County Executive Mark Polonczar confirmed that there had been a shooting in the area and that residents should stay away from the supermarket.

‘I have been advised of an active multiple shooting event at the Tops Markets on Jefferson Street in Buffalo,’ Poloncarz tweeted. ‘Police are on scene. Please stay away from the area.’

New York Governor Kathy Hochul responded to the shooting and said the state has offered assistance to local officials.

Will G., a frozen dairy worker at the supermarket, said he walked out of the cooler to stock milk when the shooting occured.

‘I just heard shots. Shots and shots and shots,’ he told Buffalo News. ‘It sounded like things were falling over.’

He added that he hid in the cooler and that more people joined him to take shelter from the gunfire.

‘I hid. I just hid,’ he said. I wasn’t going to leave that room.’

Police officials and a spokesperson for the supermarket chain did not immediately respond to messages from The Associated Press seeking comment.

The supermarket is in a predominately black neighborhood, about 3 miles north of downtown Buffalo. The surrounding area is primarily residential, with a Family Dollar store and fire station near the store.

Police closed off the block, lined by spectators, and yellow police taped surrounded the full parking lot. Mayor Byron Brown was at the scene late Saturday afternoon and expected to address the media.

The shooting came little more than a year after a March 2021 attack at a King Soopers grocery in Boulder, Colorado, that killed 10 people. Investigators have not released any information about why they believe the man charged in that attack targeted the supermarket.
