The person responsible for the shooting is Payton S. Gendron, an 18-year-old who, according to the report, was wearing tactical-grade clothing and carrying a high-caliber rifle, as well as a helmet camera to record and broadcast the crime live.

The Buffalo shooting would have been planned on Discord
A short time later it was discovered that, in effect, the user had planned this crime as an act of hatred against the black race, since he considered himself a white supremacist who learned to radicalize himself on sites like 4Chan. In the 180-page manifesto he published he not only mentioned that the white race was dying, but also laid out instructions to carry out the shootout via Discord on a private server.

The platforms used by the perpetrator have already issued statements.
“We extend our deepest condolences to the victims and their families, and will do everything we can to assist law enforcement in the investigation,” Discord told my box.
For its part, Twitch contacted The New York Times (via my box) and recalled that it has a “zero violence” policy and lamented the facts: “We are devastated to hear about the shooting that took place this afternoon in Buffalo, New York. Our hearts go out to the community impacted by this tragedy. Twitch has a zero tolerance policy against violence of any kind and works quickly to respond to all kinds of incidents The user has been indefinitely suspended from our service, and we are taking all appropriate actions, including monitoring any account transmitting this content “.
