8/3/19 Mass shooting:Multiple people have been killed in El Paso, Texas

Multiple people have been killed in a shooting in El Paso, Texas, a city official says



***update*** From MSNBC: Police confirmed 19 killed - 40 wounded

**** PLEASE KEEP THE TOPIC ON SPECIFIC SITUATION, THE PEOPLE INVOLVED, LEAVE ACCUSATIONS AND OTHER ARGUEMENTS OUT
CREATE A SEPERATE THREAD ABOUT FURTHER GUN LAWS/DEBATES ****



By Dakin Andone and Hollie Silverman, CNN
Updated 2:40 PM EDT, Sat August 03, 2019


(CNN) Multiple people were killed Saturday in a shooting in El Paso, Texas, the chief of staff to the city's mayor said.

Suspects are in custody, Olivia Zepeda said. It wasn't immediately clear how many people were in custody or how many had been killed or hurt.



Multiple victims were reported injured at a Walmart, CNN affiliate KTSM reported.

Police responded Saturday to an active shooter in the area of the Cielo Vista Mall, they tweeted.

"Scene is still active," police wrote at 1:03 p.m. ET, adding, "avoid the area" around Hawkins and Gateway East boulevards.

Police got reports of multiple shooters and were "conducting (a) search of a very large area," they tweeted just after 2 p.m. ET.

Agents from the FBI office in El Paso are responding to the incident, the office told CNN.

'You don't think it could happen here'

At least three businesses are on lockdown in the area, about three miles south of El Paso International Airport.

Three Walmart employees took refuge at a nearby Landry's Seafood house, restaurant manager Oscar Collazo told CNN. The women appeared "shook up" but not injured.

Landry's had already gone on lockdown, he said, but opened its doors when the employees ran there.

"We never thought it would be so close to us this time," Collazo said. "You see on the news all the time, but you don't think it could happen here until it does."

The nearby Hooters and Red Lobster are also on lockdown. Employees at those restaurants told CNN they are safe and see a lot of police, helicopters and people running around outside.

As details begin to become clear, they are saying 1 shooter, in custody, at least 22 injured, some dead but no clear number how many yet. Gun appears to be AK-47

Ok, because earlier they reported 3suspects, so it’s back to one. This is just terrible. Prayers to the victims and their families.

Yea, i saw that too.

It is not confirmed yet, but there are supposed pics of the killer in the back of a squad car, and footage of him entering the walmart gun up. If the info is correct, his name is Patrick crusis, and he just turned 21

A reporter from Fox News had a really horribly sad story from someone that lost his mother. Just heart-breaking.

Just too many mass shootings. Now the death toll moved from 18 to 19. Forty wounded.

A four month old, a 2 year year old, and a 9 year old amongst the wounded...

Absolutely horrible.

Is it time to have a serious discussion about the gun violence in the US yet?


When will our lawmakers do something about it?

Reports are now saying the shooter is from Allen, TX. Also stated that when the cops confronted/arrested him, they didn’t shoot him.

I would say I’m surprised, but there’s been too many of them lately. Latest reports now say he’s from Allen Tx.

It seems his motive was to target Latinos.

I'm sure at the time of your posting, the "manifesto" had already been verified as authentic by law enforcement before the bodies were even cold - right?

God this place is such a joke.

.

Plus the two killed at the Walmart Store in Southaven, Mississippi in the same week. The "uglylight" shines so very, very bright.

A white supremacist doing what a white supremacist president wants him to do.


They are saying it now on the news that he posted shortly before he did the shooting, and complaining about people crossing the border to Texas from Mexico. So yes, apparently you guys are right. They’re saying he’s being called a martyr after the shooting, by white supremacist supporters online.

Sooner or later they’re going to have to call it what it is- domestic terrorism, just like back in the early 1900s and earlier, when the kkk used to ride on horses and cars and attack Black and Jewish communities. Too many lives being stolen.
