President Biden on Monday paid tribute to retired Buffalo police officer Aaron Salter Jr., who was among those killed in a racially motivated mass shooting in a Black community.

Speaking at a previously scheduled Medal of Valor award ceremony for public safety officers, Mr. Biden recognized Mr. Salter’s bravery in attempting to subdue the shooter before being killed.

“He was actually able to shoot the assailant twice, but [the shooter] had on a bulletproof vest,” Mr. Biden said. “He lost his life in the process.”

“No one understands more than all of you here today, the pain and anguish those families and loved ones feel,” he told the attendees at the ceremony.

Mr. Salter was working as a security guard at the grocery store where the shooting occurred Saturday.
