Texas mall shooting leaves 20 dead, 26 injured

A 21-year old man was detained after a mass shooting on Saturday at a Walmart store in the Texas city of El Paso near the Mexican border. The attack left at least 20 dead and 26 injured, including several young children, in a store packed with some 3,000 shoppers. Mexican President Manuel Lopez Obrador said three of the dead and 6 of the injured were Mexican. Police are treating the attack as a hate crime directed against Latin immigration to the US.  The shooter was named as Patrick Crusius who lives in the Dallas area more than a thousand kilometers from the scene of the massacre. President Trump condemned the shooting as “an act of cowardice.”
