USA: Video shows hometown of El Paso shooting suspect

United States, Allen
August 04, 2019 at 22:59 GMT +00:00 · Published

Footage filmed on Sunday shows Allen, Texas, the hometown of 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, who has been named by police as the sole suspect behind Saturday's shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, which left 20 people dead and injured 26 more.

Footage shows the house of Crusius's parents, where he is reported to have lived along with his twin sister and brother. Liberty High School, which Crusius briefly attended before transferring to another school and graduating, can also be seen along with the community college he attended.

Gilberto Ramirez, an immigrant worker from Mexico who claimed to have worked as a roofer for 15 years in the area where Crusius lived, commented on the recent shooting, saying "It is unfortunate that they care nothing more to discriminate, the truth is we all need to live. Both whites, like browns, Hispanics, we are all human and we need to live. I don't know why, they have perverse minds maybe... We did not come to harm them, or ask them to work forcibly, whether they want to or not. But it is our duty, and I thank people that they do give us the job."

The shooting took place at a Walmart store inside the Cielo Vista Mall, which is the largest mall in El Paso.
