Buffalo mass shooting suspect's defense seeks gag order
In a hearing Wednesday that lasted nearly 40 minutes, the defense attorneys for Payton Gendron sought a gag order to silence District Attorney John Flynn.
Gendron is accused of killing 10 people at a Tops Friendly Markets in what authorities are calling a racially motivated crime.
The Hon. Craig D. Hannah is reserving judgment on the motion, according to the Erie County District Attorney's Office. However, a temporary gag order will remain in place until the judge makes a ruling on the motion.
In a statement, a spokesperson for the district attorney's office said they can not provide any more information on the case.
