El Paso shooting – Many people dead in Texas

El Paso shooting: A man has been arrested after multiple people were shot, some fatally, inside a Walmart in El Paso, Texas on Saturday.

The shooting occurred at a sprawling shopping center on the east side of El Paso, located at the intersection of Interstate 10 and Hawkins Boulevard.

Police say they received reports of gunfire at the Walmart store and Cielo Vista Mall next door, but it’s unclear right now where exactly the El Paso shooting took place.

The Cielo Vista Mall is the largest mall in El Paso. It also serves the nearby communities of Socorro, Fabens, Ft. Bliss and even the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juárez.

There are also several restaurants, a movie theater, a large bus terminal and a Sam’s Club store in the complex.

Updates:

*** Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke, who represented El Paso in Congress until January of this year, tweeted that the news reports were “heartbreaking.” O’Rourke said he will leave the campaign trail to be with his family and members of his former district.

*** Current Texas Rep. Will Hurd, who represents part of El Paso, tweeted,

“My heart is heavy for the victims of today’s shooting, their loved ones and the El Paso community,” and Rep. Escobar wrote she was “utterly heartbroken.”

*** House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also tweeted her condolences, writing, “our hearts ache for the families of those who were killed & the injured.”

*** At 12:11 pm local time (2:11 pm EST), the El Paso Police Department tweeted that they were searching a “very large area,” and said that they were responding to reports that there had been multiple shooters.
