The suspect, 18, identified himself as a fascist and white nationalist in a document posted online.

Mr Biden on Tuesday said the young man belonged to "a hateful minority".

After meeting with families impacted by the shooting, he eulogised the victims for their "individual lives of love, service and community that speak to the bigger story of who we are as Americans".

"White supremacy will not have the last word," he said.
