New York Attorney General Letitia James announced Wednesday that her office will investigate several social media companies and online platforms in connection with the deadly attack in Buffalo over the weekend.

Among these platforms are two frequently tied to gaming, Twitch and Discord, but the investigation will also target 4chan and 8chan, James said.

The attack that spurred these investigations occurred in Buffalo, New York on Saturday, when 18-year-old Payton Gendron opened fire in a crowded supermarket, killing 10 people and wounding three others.
