New York Gov. Kathy Hochul called for executives of social media companies to be held accountable on Sunday after a White 18-year-old allegedly posted a racist 180-page manifesto online before livestreaming a shooting rampage at a supermarket in a predominantly Black Buffalo neighborhood on Saturday afternoon. 

Hochul said the suspect, Payton Gendron, had been on law enforcement's radar "just as a high school student with respect to something he wrote in high school" and called upon "our law enforcement as well as our social media platforms" to investigate how much was known about the shooter.
