5/14/2022 - Ten innocent victims were gunned down while shopping at our local neighborhood grocery store. Their families, friends, and our community were also assaulted. A single gunman, in an act of cowardness, and unimaginable gull, to live stream the act, took ten defenseless and innocent lives for no reason, leaving three others wounded. This abomination of senseless behavior, we feel as pure hatred and evil. We find it incomprehensible as to why these acts are perpetrated. We as a loving, caring, sharing, and kind city of good neighbors and region are now in the spotlight to a nation that mourns with us. We all mourn today with the families and friends of the departed. We feel anger, despair, sadness, and so many other emotions. It is hard to put to words the thoughts one has as to how a human being could commit such a thing. Vengeance is mine said the lord, while here in the United States, we have a legal system that will provide swift and due justice for such acts. This outside perpetrator will not get what he wants, nor will his cohorts. We as a community are strong, close, genuine, and caring. We will NOT allow the actions of a seriously misguided individual to break the bond we in Buffalo and Western New York share. To my community, we share in your grief and humbly offer our condolences to the families of today’s victims. God Bless
