A woman who headed a food pantry and mother of the former Buffalo fire department head were among the ten killed in Saturday’s mass shooting allegedly committed by a white supremacist teenager who live-streamed his rampage.

Pearly Young, 77, who for 25 years fed needy Buffalonians in the city’s Central Park neighborhood, was shot dead during the massacre, reporter Madison Carter tweeted.

“She loved singing, dancing, & being with family,” Carter, a Buffalo native, added. “She was [a] mother, grandma, & missionary. Gone too soon.”

“YOU DID NOT DESERVE THIS!!!!” mourned Jimmie Smith on Facebook with a broken heart emoji and a picture of Young.

Ruth Whitfield, 86, the mother of former Buffalo Fire Commissioner Garnell Whitfield, also died in the shooting, the Buffalo News reported. The mother of four was shopping at the store when she was gunned down by Payton Gendron, according to the report.
