The gunman who killed ten people in a Buffalo supermarket
on Saturday had multiple inscriptions on his weapon, a photo published on Twitter seems to indicate.
The inscriptions included racial slurs and the names of Anders Breivik and John Earnest, the infamous Norwegian mass shooter and the perpetrator of the California Poway synagogue attack, respectively. Authorities are looking to confirm the authenticity of the photo which claims to be of the shooter’s weapon.
Breivik was responsible for one of the deadliest terrorist attacks in modern European history. In July 2011, he detonated a van-bomb in Oslo, killing eight people. He also carried out a mass shooting on the island of Utoya, murdering 69 people participating in a Workers' Youth League (AUF) summer camp. He received the maximum penalty under the Norwegian law of 21 years in prison, and is now serving his term in Skien prison.
