Here's another way to get points grouped and ordered
in terms of their distances from x:

X = With[{k = 1, m = 2}, Tuples[Range[-k,k], m]];
x = X[[Random[Integer,{1,Length@X}]]]

{0,-1}

Sort[{(#[[1]]-x).(#[[1]]-x),#}& /@
     Last@Reap[Scan[Sow[#,(#-x).(#-x)]&,X]]]

{{0,{{0,-1}}}
 {1,{{-1,-1},{0,0},{1,-1}}}
 {2,{{-1,0},{1,0}}}
 {4,{{0,1}}}
 {5,{{-1,1},{1,1}}}
