A man armed with a high-powered rifle and handgun killed three people at a Dollar General store in Jacksonville, Florida, on Saturday, before shooting himself, in what local law enforcement described as a racially motivated crime.

“He hated Black people,” Jacksonville Sheriff T.K. Waters told a press conference.

The suspect, whom Waters described as a white male, was not identified. Waters said all three victims – two men and a woman – were Black.

Waters said authorities believed the shooter acted alone, and that before the shooting he had authored “several manifestos,” detailing his hatred for Black people.
