The gruesome footage showed a mother writhing on the floor after thinking her eight-year-old daughter and her husband had been killed by an armed supporter of white supremacy in a Buffalo supermarket.

8-year-old London Thomas on Saturday with her parents was at the Tops Friendly Market on Jefferson Avenue in Buffalo to buy birthday cooking utensils for her mother Julie Hartwell.

London and her father Lamont Thomas told WKBW that her mother was in the meat section while they went for the ingredients to bake for her cake as a surprise when the shots rang out.

“We all ran to where the milk froze, and he shot at the milk, and the milk flowed through the metal, but the bullet didn’t go through the metal,” Londin recalls. “My dad was just trying to hide me.”

In a flash the supermarket aisles turned into a scene of mass murder. The carts lay abandoned. Bodies lay on the tiled floor. Police radios rattled with calls for help.

The survivors were shocked and distrustful when they left the store, and Hartwell was among many who were disheartened when he realized their loved ones were still inside.

Police said 18-year-old Peyton Hendron, dressed in military gear and who was broadcasting live with a helmet camera, shot 11 black men and two whites in Saturday’s rage before surrendering to authorities. Ten people were killed in the massacre.

When shots were fired Saturday afternoon, London’s father told WKBW that his first instinct was to grab his daughter and run behind. They hid in the milk cooler, and Thomas held his hand over her mouth as bullets ripped through the store and gallons of milk exploded around them.

“They never stopped,” Thomas said. “You have to think, I know I’m not in a situation I thought I never would be.”

London mother Julie Hartwell was in the meat department of the store and said she heard the footsteps of an armed man getting louder and closer. But her only concern was her daughter.

“My first instinct dropped to the floor and crawled on my chest,” she said. “I’m not really trying to raise my head, I’m not trying to look at anything. I was just trying to get to a safe place. But at the same time I am worried about my daughter. “

Hartwell added that what she saw that day at the store was so horrific that she couldn’t get it out of her head.

“I saw dead bodies – when he came back and walked and just looked at people to see if they were moving and if they were moving, he shot them,” she said.

Leaving the store, Hartwell was disappointed to learn that her partner and daughter were still inside.

London and her father were separated from their mother for 20 minutes. Hartwell said those moments when she was looking for a daughter were the most horrific in her life.

They found themselves on Landon Street on the Tops side after being released from the building, and Hartwell found themselves on Riley Street on the other side of the building.

Hartwell said those 20 minutes of their separation were some of the longest moments in her life.

“Twenty minutes later my daughter was given to me,” she said. “It was the longest wait of my life.”

Londine said she is afraid for her mother but feels safe with her father.

“I was afraid for my mother,” she said. “I didn’t know what happened to her because she was in front and I was behind. I didn’t know where she was. I thought she was gone. “

“I love her very much,” London added. “She’s the best mom I’ve ever seen in the world.”

Over the next few days, investigators will try to dismantle the massacre, which killed 10 people, all black and apparently hunting for skin color.

President Joe Biden arrived on Tuesday to mourn the site of America’s latest deadly massacre, warning that the ideology of white supremacy, which motivates the alleged gunman, is tearing apart the “soul” of the country.

During a hastily organized trip to Buffalo, New York, Biden, accompanied by his wife Jill Biden, repeated the wearily familiar role of presidents – the main comforter.

It was to begin with a meeting with the families of 10 African-Americans who were allegedly killed by a white gunman at a nearby supermarket on Saturday.

18-year-old Peyton Hendron, who is accused of killing 10 people in a “hate crime” after 50 shots at a supermarket in upstate New York, reportedly conducted “reconnaissance” at a store before the attack.

Meetings with community leaders and emergency services are also scheduled, as well as a visit to an impromptu memorial in a supermarket to express “condolences and consolation to those affected by the tragedy,” a White House spokesman said.

Biden will then deliver a speech that, like many others he has delivered, will call on Congress to bridge the divide in restricting the possession of firearms protected by the Constitution, which has led to more weapons than people in the world’s richest country.

After decades of mass shootings in schools, nightclubs, cinemas, and churches, many Americans have been dumbfounded by each new outrage, while presidents have repeatedly expressed their inability to change laws in the face of a reluctant Congress.

In Saturday’s frenzy, the killer owned an AR-15, a military-style weapon that has been used repeatedly in mass shootings across the country, and at the same time was one of the most popular rifles among legitimate gun enthusiasts.

Continuing unsuccessfully campaigning to ban machine guns, Biden will again demand laws to “keep guns on our streets,” a White House official said.

He also stressed the rejection of firearms by people with serious mental illnesses that pose a “danger to themselves or others”.
