BREAKING: Patrick Crusius has been identified as the El Paso Walmart shooting suspect who murdered at least 18 people, including children, and injured more than 20. Crusius is from Dallas.
Crusius reportedly had a Kalashnikov rifle and wore eye protection to keep the blast out of his eyes, as well as ear protection. His last known address is in Allen, TX, with his parents.
Police do not believe any more suspects are at large. There are reports that some of the injured transported to area hospitals have passed away.

Reaction on Twitter:
Your Republican government cut funding for a program called CVE – Countering Violent Extremism. They re-allocated the money from white domestic extremism and focused totally on foreign, middle eastern, Muslim extremism. They did so contrary to the data.

The #ElPaso shooter wrote a manifesto that talked about his hatred for Hispanics. So when you ask “where was he radicalized”, look no further than the words coming out of the mouth (and cesspool of a twitter feed) of the current occupant of the White House.

OFFICIAL RULING: I believe I have seen enough raw data to call the #ELPasoMallShooting an act of domenstic terror so it is the #ElPasoTerroristAttack. The suspect should heretofore be referred to as “the terrorist” NOT “the shooter”.

There will be calls not to publicize the shooter's racist and viciously anti-Latinx "manifesto." I think it should be widely circulated. He went hunting for immigrants. This is precisely where white nationalist terrorism has brought us. #walmartshooting

The latest terrorist in our nation is named as "Patrick Crusius" and social media accounts indicate he's a big supporter of Trump.
