Death toll in El Paso shooting rises to 22

The shootings in Texas and OH were the 21st and 22nd mass killings of 2019 in the US, according to an AP/'USA Today'/Northeastern University mass murder database which tracks homicides in which four or more people killed - not including the offender.

Mexico's foreign secretary, Marcelo Ebrard, said Monday the Mexican government considers the mass shooting to be an act of terrorism against Mexican citizens on USA soil.

Juan Figueroa, 24, an Army soldier who has lived in El Paso since early this year, said Trump has a right to go wherever he wants, but he worries his presence might incite violence.

Crusius, of Allen, Texas, has been jailed without bond.

The former president also calls on law enforcement and internet platforms to find ways to "reduce the influence" of hate groups, pointing to the fact that the El Paso shooter appears to have been "radicalized by white nationalist websites". Police have said only that the victims are different ages and genders.

Dr. Stephen Flaherty from the Del Sol Medical Center said at a news conference that the gunshot wounds of patients are "devastating and major".

The shooting was one of three mass shooting that occurred in the U.S. over the past week.

El Paso County Sheriff Richard Wiles said he is "outraged" that this "Anglo man came here to kill Hispanics", Breitbart Texas reported on Sunday.

Detectives are also trying to determine whether a racist, anti-immigrant screed posted online shortly before Saturday's shooting was written by Crusius. Trump has derided asylum seekers and other immigrants coming across the USA southern border as liars and criminals, prompting Democrats to accuse him of racism.

Three Mexican nationals are among the dead and another six among the injured, Mexican officials said late Saturday.

The New York Times reported earlier this year that the crime rate of El Paso, a city with a population of about 650,000, has consistently had a lower crime rate than cities of a similar size, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation data. The suspect is a 21-year-old white man from Allen, Texas. The shootings occurred within 13 hours of each other.

"When I first got to this job", he said, "I never knew there was an odor to blood, but there is". Friends said he held dual US-Mexican citizenship. "Because a lot of people probably think it's because of him that everything happened".

More than 23,000 pedestrians cross from Ciudad Juárez to El Paso to work every day. "I just think people will be angry".
