Man accused of Texas mass shooting confesses to targeting Mexicans

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke walks on an international bridge to cross into Ciudad Juarez Mexico Thursday Aug. 8 2019. O’Rourke has crossed the border into Mexico for the funeral of one of the 22 people killed in a mass shoot

However, as reported by CNN, his mother did reach out to law enforcement weeks ahead of the mass shooting concerned about his possession of an "AK-type" weapon, though family lawyers said she did so exclusively on an "informational" basis. Singer Eric Keyes, a Texas singer who was shot in 2012, told the celebrity news site that his therapist is the El Paso suspect's father, Bryan Crusius. He was trying to kill Mexicans, the filing says he told officers.

This undated file image provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation shows Patrick Crusius, whom authorities have identified as the gunman who killed multiple people at an El Paso, Texas, shopping area.

It is not known whether the gun the mother inquired about is the weapon used in the attack.

Patrick fled the crime scene and was arrested by the police after he told a police officer that he is the shooter.

Sgt. Enrique Carrillo told NPR 21-year-old Patrick Wood Crusius was in the left hand lane of an intersection when rangers pulled up behind him.

Twenty minutes before the massacre, Crusius is said to have posted a white supremacist manifesto online saying the shooting was in response to an "invasion" of Hispanics coming across the southern border.

Multiple generations of El Paso residents discuss the shooting at the Walmart.

USA federal authorities characterize the El Paso massacre as domestic terrorism and Crusius might be charged with a hate crime as well as multiple counts of murder and attempted murder.

After the more than 10-hour drive, Crusius entered the store with an AK-47 assault rifle and multiple magazine clips with the intent to kill "Mexicans", he said.

Mexican officials have said eight of the people killed in the shooting were Mexican nationals.

Just hours later, a gunman wearing body armor and a mask opened fire in a crowded neighborhood in Dayton, Ohio, killing nine people, including his own sister.

US President Donald Trump had condemned the mass shooting incident at a Walmart store in Texas and called it an act of cowardice.

But some gun rights advocates say allowing law enforcement to take firearms would go against the United States constitution, which protects the right to bear arms.

Trump did not attend the meeting, and the White House declined to say which administration officials took part in the closed-door session.
