Buffalo Mass Shooter Sentenced To Life Without Parole After Anguished Man Lunges At Him In Court [VIDEO]

CNN reports:

A man rushed at the Buffalo grocery store mass shooter in court on Wednesday during an emotional sentencing hearing for the anti-Black racist attack last year. The man, wearing a gray sweatshirt, ran at the gunman but was quickly blocked by security in court, and the gunman Payton Gendron was taken out of the courtroom.

The incident came during a victim impact statement from Barbara Massey, the sister of Katherine Massey, a 72-year-old who was killed in the attack. After a short break, Gendron returned to the courtroom and Erie County Court Judge Susan Eagan restarted the hearing.

CBS News reports:

The gunman who killed 10 people and injured three more in a racist mass shooting at a Buffalo, New York, supermarket last year was sentenced on Wednesday to life in prison without parole.

Payton Gendron, a white supremacist from Conklin, New York, who was 18 years old at the time of the massacre, appeared in Erie County Court to receive the expected sentence after pleading guilty in November to all state charges brought against him.

The gunman wore bullet-resistant armor and a helmet as he carried out the shooting using a semiautomatic rifle that investigators said was purchased legally, but modified so that it could hold high-capacity magazines that are not legal in New York. Gendron live-streamed the attack with a camera strapped to his helmet.
