A White teenager suspected of killing 10 people in a racially motivated shooting rampage at a Buffalo grocery store in a predominantly Black neighborhood was known to authorities for a violent-threats probe more than a year ago.

Buffalo Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia told reporters Sunday that the suspect submitted to a mental-health evaluation and was released after a day and a half.

Payton Gendron, 18, surrendered to law enforcement on Saturday at the grocery store following the incident, which officials were calling “racially motivated violent extremism.”

Mr. Gendron reportedly also publicized a racist manifesto online. Of the 13 people hit by gun rounds, 11 were Black and two White.
