Authorities are now investigating a new lead in Buffalo supermarket mass shooting which left 10 people dead involving a retired federal agent who allegedly was in regular contact with the shooter up until the time of the gruesome attack.

As The Buffalo News reports:


Law enforcement officers are investigating whether a retired federal agent had about 30 minutes advance notice of a white supremacist’s plans to murder Black people at a Buffalo supermarket, two law enforcement officials told The Buffalo News.

Authorities believe the former agent – believed to be from Texas – was one of at least six individuals who regularly communicated with accused gunman Payton Gendron in an online chat room where racist hatred was discussed, the two officials said.

The two law enforcement sources with direct knowledge of the investigation stated these individuals were invited by Gendron to read about his mass shooting plans and the target location about 30 minutes before Gendron killed 10 people at Tops Markets on Jefferson Avenue on May 14.

“These were like-minded people who used this chat group to talk about their shared interests in racial hatred, replacement theory and hatred of anyone who is Jewish, a person of color or not of European ancestry,” said one of the two law enforcement officials with close knowledge of the investigation. “What is especially upsetting is that these six people received advanced notice of the Buffalo shooting, about 30 minutes before it happened

The agency the retired agent worked for has so far not been released and authorities are reportedly still in the process of seeking out the six individual the shooter was in contact with immediately prior to his rampage.

And what about the FBI agent in Albuquerque who told the COLONEL – father of the laptop owner’s shop – to GET OUT of HIS OFFICE and to “lawyer up” after the COLONEL took him the laptop?
That should be the TOP NEWS story of the world!
