INSIDE THE TEXAS SHOOTING
In today’s featured special we look into the mass shooting in Texas. We find out about the suspected shooter’s manifesto, inspiration and why some are calling him a ” lost young man.”
Al Jazeera News reports, An armed man opened fire in a packed shopping mall in El Paso, Texas. The attack killed 20 people and injured 26. The man, 21 was arrested outside a Walmart near the US- Mexico border. Us Media named the suspect as Patrick Crusius, a white male from Texas. Police confirmed they are in possession of the suspect’s “manifesto” which detailed the “Hispanic invasion” of Texas and noted he had expected to be killed in the attack.
The New York Times says minutes before the attack the suspects “hate-filled Manifesto” appeared online. In the manifesto titled “The Inconvenient Truth”, the suspect details his plans to separate America into race territories and warned white people were being replaced by foreigners. Inspired by Trump the 2000 word manifesto described of an imminent attack and raged against immigrants. It drew inspiration from the New Zealand mass murder of Muslims in March and claimed immigrants were taking jobs from “natives.” The manifesto highlights the shooter’s support for President Trump and adds his opinions on immigration predate Trump’s campaign for President.
The New York Times describes the suspected shooter as “a lost young man” and noted shortly after the mass shooting his social media accounts were shut down.
France 24 adds the police are treating the incident as a HATE CRIME and Texas Governor, Gregg Abbott has said the shooting will be aggressively prosecuted as capital murder and a hate crime. El Paso police chief described the scene as “horrific” and added those who were hurt in the attack face “life-threatening injuries.”
One witness claimed four men, dressed in black came shooting in the mall. Police believe the shooter to only be one individual but are continuing to investigate others were involved.
