In Jacksonville, Florida, an armed man with a rifle and a pistol burst into a store and shot three dark-skinned visitors. Afterward, he shot himself, informs Reuters.

Sheriff T. K. Waters told journalists that the man was armed with a Glock and an "AR-15 style" rifle. He was also wearing a tactical vest and a mask. He entered a Dollar General store and shot two dark-skinned men and a woman before shooting himself.

The investigation indicates that the crime was racially motivated, as he had sent several manifestos to the media expressing his hatred for dark-skinned individuals before the crime. In addition, his weapons had swastikas on them.
