    A family who was near Walmart during the shooting fled to a nearby Landry’s Seafood, hostess Sofia Cervantes told USA TODAY.

    “They are in shock right now,” Cervantes said. “They were barely able to talk to us.”

    Cervantes said the restaurant is on lockdown.

    The shooting comes just days after two people were shot and killed in a Walmart store in Southhaven, Mississippi, south of Memphis, and the same week three people were killed at a shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in California.

    Note in some reports the mass shooting is also being reported to be at the Cielo Vista Mall in the El Paso area.

    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-t...edName=topNews


    EL PASO, Tx. (Reuters) - Police said they were responding to an active shooter near a shopping mall in El Paso, Texas, on Saturday and told the public to avoid the area.

    “Scene is still active,” the El Paso Police Department wrote on Twitter. Few other details were immediately available.





    Reports on social media said shots were fired at a WalMart near the Cielo Vista Mall, in the east of the city, and that shoppers were being evacuated from the mall as a precaution.




    Video posted on Twitter appeared to show customers at one department store being evacuated with their hands in the air.

    Mass shootings are common in the United States. On Sunday, a gunman killed three people at a food festival in Northern California before fatally shooting himself.

    At least three businesses in the area were on lockdown.

    Three Walmart employees took refuge at a 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.

    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.

    The age of the victims is from 35-82 in this update

    EL PASO, Texas (AP/Gray News) - Police in El Paso, Texas, say one person is in custody after a shooting a at a popular shopping mall and multiple people are injured or killed.

    Police said in a news conference Saturday afternoon that they received 911 calls about a shooting at a Walmart near Cielo Vista Mall around 10 a.m.

    There were initial reports of multiple suspects, but currently one person is in custody and police don’t believe anyone is outstanding. Police say there are reports that a rifle was used in the shooting.

    Currently, exact numbers of those injured or killed are not available, but police earlier said there were “multiple fatalities."

    CNN reports 11 patients are being treated at Del Sol Medical Center. A spokesperson said in a statement to local media the victims range in age from 35 to 82. Two are in stable condition and nine are listed as critical. Another 11 are being treated at University Medical Center of El Paso.

    Police are still searching the Walmart and the mall, but they said there is no imminent threat, but that doesn’t mean the scene is secure. Police said they don’t believe at this time there were multiple shooters, but that could change.

    Video on social media shows people running towards police with their hands up, and officers in tactical gear.

    Always the same story. When my partner told me about the other shooting the other day (pick one) I said, " lemme guess...white Christian terrorism." of course I was right. And I'll be right the next time. Why is the solution of stricter gun laws so outlandish? People REALLY want to hold on to their guns that badly? Then go ahead and pry them from their cold, dead, dumb, hands because they are part of the problem.

    Jesus fucking christ. It's only shocking anymore that it isn't surprising at all. What the fuck.

    The latest report I read insinuated that most of the people shot were white (when the murderer obviously drove to El Paso to kill Mexicans.)

    But I mean, hey, as long as we can have our guns what's a few lives a day?

    20 People reported dead in the mass shooting.

    EL PASO, Texas - UPDATE #6 5:30:

    In a news conference surrounded by city leaders and law enforcement agencies, Governor Greg Abbott confirmed that 20 people have died in the mass shooting near Cielo Vista Mall.

    Police responded at 10:45 a.m., six minutes after the first 911 call went out. El Paso Police said 26 people are injured. Chief Greg Allen said the scene is a horrific one.

    Chief Allen said the suspect who is in custody is a 21-year-old white male from Allen, TX. He would not confirm the suspect's name. Police confirmed the suspect used an AK-47 rifle in the attack.

    The deceased will also remain at the scene until the crime is cleared.

    The State of Texas will be the lead agency prosecuting the suspect. It is not confirmed if the mass shooting is a hate crime.

    The FBI said is it a murder investigation and is currently reviewing all the evidence at this time.

    The suspect was around outside the Walmart where the initial shooting took place. Chief Allen said he surrendered to police.

    Governor Abbott said the state is doing more than ever before, specifically during the last legislative session, to make sure students are safer than ever before after the mass shooting at Santa Fe High School near Houston. "During that time, as far as I know, we did not evaluate for or plan for a situation like this." Abbott said that during the legislative session, the most agreed upon issue was how to challenge mental health in the state.

    Chief Allen said if there is additional information that needs to be released, another new conference could be scheduled.

    The eighth deadliest shooting in the United States. This is the third year in a row that Texas has had a mass shooting. In 2018, 10 people died in the Santa Fe High School shooting. In 2017, 26 people died in the Sutherland Springs shooting.

    Police said the scene on the city's east side is still active and they are warning all members of the public to stay away from the area of Airway to Hawkins north of Interstate 10.

    The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms had agents en route to the mall area; the ATF asked that people refrain from posting images of first responders to social media.

    Employees at several nearby restaurants told CNN they see a lot of police, helicopters and people running around outside.

    "We never thought it would be so close to us this time," Landry's Seafood House restaurant manager Oscar Collazo told CNN. "You see on the news all the time, but you don't think it could happen here until it does."​​​​​​

    We will continue to update as more information becomes available.

    I feel like instead of posting all these stories, maybe we should post on the day that mass shootings DON'T happen in America. All of these stories are the same, just hit rinse, add racism, and repeat.


    Yep.

    Edit :we should also note the new miracle performed today - yet another armed & murderous nazi was "somehow" not only taken into custody alive, but he also seems to be lacking visible officer-inflicted injuries.

    Amazing.

    Jesus fucking christ. It's only shocking anymore that it isn't surprising at all. What the fuck.

    The latest report I read insinuated that most of the people shot were white (when the murderer obviously drove to El Paso to kill Mexicans.)

    But I mean, hey, as long as we can have our guns what's a few lives a day?
    Hey maybe its time for a complete shutdown of "white Christian terrorism" in the USA and shut down the first and second amendments in the USA since nobody can handle freedom.

    7:35 p.m.

    Mexico President Andr?s Manuel L?pez Obrador says three Mexicans have been killed in the shooting in the border city of El Paso, Texas.

    He tweeted Saturday that he sends “condolences to the families of the victims, both American and Mexican.”

    El Paso is home to many Mexicans and sits directly across the border from Ciudad Juarez in the northern state of Chihuahua.

He identified three as 45-year-old Mario de Alba Montes, 44-year-old Olivia Mariscal Rodr?guez and 10-year-old Erika de Alba Mariscal. Ebrard says the man and woman are from Chihuahua and all three are being treated at an El Paso hospital.

    Nobody's got freedom to begin with. If you can't walk outside & go about your daily life without wondering if before lunch you'll cop a bullet to the head yourself, or watch someone else die - then you're not fucking free.
