US-SHOOTING-EL PASO

Texas Governor Greg Abbott is mourning the loss of 20 people who were killed in the El Paso shooting today. El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen says it took six minutes from the active shooter call to police responding to the scene. More than two dozen others are being treated for their wounds after a lone gunman with an AK-47 opened fire at the Cielo Vista Mall Walmart. The suspected gunman, a 21-year-old man from the Dallas area, surrendered and is in custody. He is expected to be arraigned on capital murder charges. Allen says the case may be prosecuted as a hate crime, due to an online posting the suspect allegedly made about an hour before the shooting.
