ANKARA – A US gunman in a deadly “racially motivated” attack in Jacksonville, Florida, had a gun with Nazi symbols and left a manifesto that said “he hated black people,” according to officials on Saturday.

Clay County Sheriff Michelle Cook confirmed the deaths after a shooting at a store on Kings Road in Jacksonville, Florida.

Police officers are in the area near Edward Waters University, a small historically Black university.

Mayor Donna Deegan told the WJXT television station that multiple fatalities were inside a Dollar General store, without providing further details.

“This is unacceptable,” said Deegan. “One shooting is too much but these mass shootings are really hard to take.” (Anadolu)
