A white gunman who killed three Black people during a racially motivated rampage at a Dollar General Store in Jacksonville, Florida purchased the firearms he used in the attack legally, the city's sheriff confirmed. The 21-year-old man, Ryan Christopher Palmeter, had no criminal arrest history before he launched what police have described as an anti-Black hate crime, with racist rhetoric found in three manifestos written before the shootings. Authorities are investigating the case as an act of racially motivated extremism, with Jacksonville Sheriff T.K. Waters saying the shooter's thoughts were "irrational" but he was "100% lucid".
