Twenty-two people were slaughtered and more than a dozen were wounded when Patrick Crusius, 21, opened fire at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, on Saturday. The killer was sitting in his car when police responded to the carnage. He then got out of his car, unarmed, and surrendered to authorities with a “stone cold look.” “It was a look I’d never seen before, and I’ve been on this force for 31 years,” a police official said. “I’ve seen murderers, robbers, nothing like this.” During the massacre, Crusius opened fire with an AK-47 style rifle at the busy Walmart in El Paso. With the store packed on Saturday afternoon, Crusius was able to empty multiple magazines into fleeing customers as he moved methodically down the crammed aisles. Crusius has been charged with capital murder. He is being held without bond. Crusius is believed to have authored a racist, anti-immigrant document  that laid out a dark vision of America overrun by Hispanic immigrants. Within the hate-filled writing, which authorities called a “manifesto,” were the words: “I’m probably going to die today.” The four-page document, titled “The Inconvenient Truth,” was published on  the online message board 8chan  about 20 minutes before the

shooting. The writing is filled with white supremacist language and racist hatred aimed at immigrants and Latinos, and the author says he opposes “race mixing” and encourages immigrants to return to their home countries. He said that he has had these anti-immigrant thoughts for years. Claiming that unchecked illegal immigration was turning his home state into “a Democratic stronghold,” Crusius also wrote that “the Republican Party is also terrible” and wrote that President Trump’s anti-immigration rhetoric played no part in his decision to slaughter tens of people. The Department of Justice is treating the El Paso mass shooting as a case of domestic terrorism and is “seriously considering” bringing federal hate crime and federal firearm charges which carry a possible death penalty, U.S. Attorney John Bash said on Sunday. At least eight victims were Mexican nationals. Mexican Secretary of Foreign Affairs Marcelo Ebrard said on Monday that the attack was “an act of terror, obviously on U.S. territory, but against Mexican citizens.” Among those who were slaughtered on Saturday was David Johnson, 63, who had gone to Walmart with his wife and granddaughter. He had shielded their bodies with his body and was killed. Jordan Anchondo, 24, was killed while shielding her 2-month-old body from the hail of bullets. Her husband, Andre, was also killed. 15-year-old Javier Amir Rodriguez loved to play soccer. He was known to always smile and was funny. He never missed a game or a practice. His life was brutally cut short on Saturday. Angelina Englisbee, 86, lost her husband when she was 38 years old. She raised seven children on her own. Sadly, she lost her own life over the weekend during the melee. Also killed was Arturo Benavides, who served in the Army and Texas Army National Guard from 1978 to 2001 and worked as a Sun Metro transit operator and coin sorter operator until he retired in 2013. A married couple, Leonardo Campos and Maribel Hernandez, also died. Hernandez’s brother, Al, told CNN affiliate KFOX-TV that the couple had just dropped their dog off at a groomer before going to Walmart. He said their family did not realize anything was amiss until the groomer called them, saying the couple had not returned for the dog.
