At least 20 people have been killed and over 2 dozen injured after a gunman fired indiscriminately at a busy Walmart store that was full of families shopping for the new school year. The incident occurred in the Texas border city of El Paso, and caused widespread panic.
According to The Guardian, a 21 year-old white male from a suburb of Dallas more than 600 miles away, was taken into custody after he surrendered to officers.
Right now we have a manifesto from this individual, that indicates to some degree, it has a nexus to potential hate crime. The suspect drove the nine-hour journey to El Paso.
El Paso, located in western Texas, sits right on the border with Mexico. The city has around 680,000 people, and its population is 80% Latino.
