How a Buffalo Hospital Treated Victims of the Tops Market Shooting

Dr. Michael Manka had just finished his shift at Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo, New York, Saturday afternoon and was getting ready to head home.

Then the hospital received a call: a gunshot victim was being transported. Soon, the center learned that there had been a mass shooting with multiple victims.

In total, 13 people were shot at Tops Friendly Market, a supermarket 2.5 miles away, in what the Buffalo Police Department described as a racially motivated attack.

Of the victims, 10 were killed and the remaining three -- identified by authorities as Zaire Goodman, 20; Jennifer Warrington, 50, and Christopher Braden, 55 -- were rushed to ECMC.

"Initially, we did not know how many victims were going to be coming to the hospital and we were preparing for the worst like we typically do with mobilizing our teams, getting as many nurses, doctors, anesthesia teams ready for the arrival of multiple gunshot victims," Manka, chief of emergency medicine at ECMC, told ABC News.
