NYC goes on high alert in wake of ‘racist’ Buffalo supermarket massacre as NYPD deploys extra cops to black churches after 10 shoppers were murdered in predominantly African-American area

New York City has gone on high alert in the wake of the racially motivated shooting in Buffalo with the NYPD reportedly deploying officers to black places of worship across the city as a precautionary measure Saturday evening.

'Nypd deploying extra units across city including houses of worship/Black churches as a precaution,' WNBC reporter Jonathan Dienst tweeted Saturday, roughly six hours after a suspected white supremacist gunned down 10 and wounded three in a Tops supermarket, sending shockwaves throughout the country.

Cops say 11 of those shot were black.

The gunman, 18-year-old Payton Gendron, was arrested shortly after the killing spree. Cops say the teen drove more than three hours from his hometown of Conklin to Buffalo to engage in the shooting, which he livestreamed on Twitch.

Video of the assault was quickly scrubbed from the livestreaming site, within just two minutes of its posting.

Police described the incident Saturday - which saw Gendron, equipped with two assault rifles, don military garb and storm the supermarket - as a 'heavily armed' attack. 

'He exited his vehicle. He was very heavily armed. He had tactical gear. He had a tactical helmet on. He had a camera that he was livestreaming what he was doing,' city Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia said at a news conference. 

Payton Hendron is arrested Saturday after killing 10 people at a Tops Market supermarket in Buffalo, Upstate New York. Police say the massacre was motivated by the 18 year-old's hatred for black people. Eleven of those shot were African-American 

Gendron shot four people outside the store, three of whom died, the commissioner said. He then went into the supermarket where he exchanged gunfire with a security guard - a former Buffalo police officer. The ex-cop shot at the gunman multiple times cops said, but the bullets hit the shooter's body arm and left him unfazed.

Gendron then killed the guard. A further six victims are believed to have been shot dead inside.
