El Paso Walmart Massacre
El Paso, TX
Twenty-two people were killed and another 24 injured when an anti-immigrant gunman armed with an assault rifle attacked shoppers at an El Paso Walmart in what federal authorities now consider an act of domestic terrorism. Just after 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, August 3, in El Paso, a young white gunman began opening fire at the Walmart next to the city's popular Cielo Vista Mall. The shooter, dressed in dark clothing and wearing earmuff-style hearing protection, was armed with an AK-47-style assault rifle and extra magazines. He began his attack by firing on victims in the Walmart parking lot, then continued his rampage inside the store, reportedly stalking his victims through the aisles.
