The suspect in the killing of at least 20 people in El Paso posted an online manifesto before starting on the deadly rampage that was described by Texas law enforcement and political leaders as hate-filled and racist.

Media reports have identified 21-year-old Patrick Crusius of Allen, Texas, as the suspect in the shooting Saturday at a Walmart in the border city.

Although authorities did not publicly confirm his identify or describe the precise contents of the manifesto, a document posted on the website 8chan hours before the rampage spoke about the “invasion” of Latino immigrants and said the writer agreed with the shooter who killed worshipers at a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand. That document was posted by an anonymous user who posted another document under the file name “P._Crusius.” That file was taken down, and it is not clear what it contained.

A Twitter account that appeared to belong to Crusius was shut down Saturday evening. Tweets on the account had praised President Trump and, in particular, his effort to build a wall along the U.S- Mexico border.

Daniel Heo of Plano, Texas, told The Times that he attended elementary school with Crusius and remembers playing basketball and soccer with him during recess. They attended kindergarten together at Beverly Elementary School in Plano, according to Heo, 20.

Heo said he fell out of touch with Crusius after elementary school. It wasn’t until Saturday, when he received a text message from his friend about the shooting and how Crusius was a suspect, that Heo remembered him.

“I’m shocked. I remember him being a nice kid,” Heo said.

Twenty people were killed and dozens more injured on Saturday morning in a massacre at an El Paso, Texas, Walmart that was packed with back-to-school shoppers, making it one of the ten deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history, officials said.

The wounded ranged in age from a 2-year-old child to an 82-year-old victim.

The suspect was identified by authorities as Patrick Crusius, 21, of Allen, Texas.

He was "taken into custody without incident" and without any law enforcement officers firing their weapons, according to El Paso Police Department Sgt. Robert Gomez. The alleged shooter's motives remains unknown, Gomez said.

At a news conference on Saturday night, El Paso police Chief Greg Allen said that 20 people had died and 26 more had been injured. Allen said authorities are examining what he called a “manifesto” that they believe was written by the shooter and shows a possible “nexus” to a hate crime.

The majority of the victims were shot inside the Walmart, according to Gomez, which at the time contained more than 100 employees and what authorities have preliminarily estimated to be between 1,000 and 3,000 Saturday morning back-to-school shoppers.

A spokesperson for El Paso's Del Sol Medical Center said that 11 victims ranging in age from 35 to 82 were being treated at the facility. University Medical Center of El Paso received an additional 13 victims -- two of whom were children, ages 2 and 9, who were stabilized and transferred to El Paso Children's Hospital, according to officials. A hospital spokesperson said that nine patients were in critical condition and three had life-threatening injuries.

Reportedly gang related. So likely drug trade related, cartels would never do this though. They deal with their "business" over in Juarez. If shooter was an illegal immigrant Trump will have an orgasm.

Why would a gang banger go shoot up a Wal-Mart? Unless his girl works there who broke up with him?

This weekly mass shooting is getting really tired but what can we really do... guns are embedded in our culture and theres so many guns already out there on the streets that a ban would be virtually useless.

Our gun problem is a shitty situation all around

It's sad how desensitized I've become to these at this point. I really wish the media would stop glorifying these tragedies and giving these psychos their 5 minutes of fame.

A gun grab ban would be counterproductive. It's going to have to be a slow process. The first step would be going after the manufacturers to prevent the sale of further types of guns, rather than trying to take away from the people who already have them. Then instead of making it a criminal offense for having the kind of gun that we want to outlaw, we make it a civil offense with a monetary fine. Like, you want to keep your gun, fine, just don't get caught with it. If you do get caught with it, you pay a 500 fine and have it taken from you. Getting caught in public with an illegal gun is far different from invading homes to take them from people. Then you stop letting people sell the kind of bullets needed to fire those guns.

Guns are not like drugs or booze that they try to ban. It's relatively easy to make your own. How many people know how to make their own guns or their own bullets? Exactly. Like I said, it would be a slow process but the kind of weapons that make it easy to kill a lot of people in a short of time would slowly disappear from the streets.

A complete overhaul of how policing is done should be a part of this equation. So should how we deal with poverty. So should the war on drugs be ended.

There is no one answer and anyone calling for a ban where the government tries to take everyone's guns is a moron. It's going to take a cultural change of society. It ain't going to be easy but it can be done.

I guess thoughts and prayers from the last mass shooting didn't stop this one. What a shame. Every person that utters that garbage should have a brick dropped on their head repeatedly.

Just waiting for the ironic moral superior person telling us we shouldn't use tragedies to push an agenda, the same people that would jump on any bombing to support travel bans.

Guns are seen to have more value than Muslims by Americans.

No more thoughts or prayers, if you get shot it's your fault, you shouldn't have been lackin'. If you don't want to get got stay strapped, we need more good guys with guns, every man, woman, and child. That way when the shooter pulls out there will be a gun pointed at him from every direction, shooters will need to know Gunkata just to get a shot off.

They're was a theory that increased societal pressure and overpopulation was partially the blame for increased shootings. I'm not justifying this, I just thought I'd bring it up.
