At least 15 people are dead and dozens injured after a 21-year-old suspect opened fire at a Walmart shopping center in El Paso, Texas Saturday.

“Police said at an earlier news conference that the suspect was taken into custody without incident and no law enforcement fired their weapons. The Walmart was near capacity at the time of the shooting, with as many as 3,000 people inside along with 100 employees,” reports Fox News.

“Ryan Mielke, a spokesman for University Medical Center of El Paso, told Fox News that 13 patients — 1 of whom died at the hospital — were being treated at the facility’s Level 1 trauma center. Mielke told the Associated Press that two children, ages 2 and 9, were stabilized at the medical center before being transferred to the neighboring El Paso Children’s Hospital,” adds Fox.

President Trump commenting on the shooting within minutes, writing “Terrible shootings in ElPaso, Texas. Reports are very bad, many killed. Working with State and Local authorities, and Law Enforcement. Spoke to Governor to pledge total support of Federal Government. God be with you all!”

REPORT: El Paso Shooting Investigated as ‘Domestic Terrorism,’ Could Carry Death Penalty for Shooter

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.05.19

The El Paso shooting at a Walmart over the weekend is now being investigated as an act of “Domestic Terrorism” and could carry the death penalty for 21-year-old suspect Patrick Crusius.

“I’ve been in close consultation with Attorney General Barr. We are conducting a methodical investigation… With a view towards bringing federal hate crime charges and federal firearm charges which carry the penalty of death,” said the US District Attorney. “We’re also treating this as a domestic terrorism case.”

The gunman opened fire at a crowded Walmart in west Texas Saturday; killing at least 20 people and injuring dozens more. The wounded range from the age of two to 82.

“We’re going to do what we do to terrorists in this country, which is to deliver swift and certain justice,” added the Attorney.

“You have to see it for yourself,” said El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen. “When I first got into this job, I never knew there was an odor to blood, but there is. And until you first hand see that, as far as my description of it, horrific would be unserving as far as what that scene looks like.”
