President Biden is expected to make a brief visit to Buffalo Tuesday morning to meet with officials and families of victims who died in Saturday’s attack at the Tops market on Jefferson Avenue.

A source with knowledge of the situation who asked not to be identified said the president and first lady Jill Biden are scheduled to land at Buffalo Niagara International Airport shortly after 9 a.m., where they will be briefed on the latest developments regarding the racially motivated shooting at the market that claimed the lives of 10 people and injured three others.

The source said Biden will meet with Mayor Byron W. Brown, County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz, District Attorney John J. Flynn and Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia at the airport for an update on the situation.

It is not yet known whether Gov. Kathy Hochul will be part of the delegation welcoming the president at the airport.

Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer and Sen. Kirsten E. Gillibrand — both Democrats from New York — however, are expected to accompany Biden to Buffalo.
