One of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history took place at an El Paso, Texas Walmart, and found a 21-year-old man named Patrick Crusius killing 20 people and reportedly injuring over 25 people.
The incident took place on Saturday morning and found police on the scene. Despite the man killing 20 people and injuring many, he was somehow “taken into custody without incident.” Two law enforcement officials on the scene said Crusius told investigators he was trying to shoot as many Mexicans as possible. Police reportedly recovered an AK-47 style assault rifle on the scene, which was used by the shooter.
El Paso police chief Greg Allen held a press conference where he revealed details of the situation, saying 20 people died as a result of the mass shooting, and over 25 people were injured.
