August 06, 2019 at 18:29 GMT +00:00 · Published

El Paso residents continued to mourn after Saturday's mass shooting at a local Walmart store, with some bringing flowers to a makeshift memorial on Tuesday while others embraced strangers in a display of compassion. Balloons were also released in memory of the victims of the attack during a vigil at the site.

"I felt the loss of a loved one in my life and for that one instant that somebody hugs me that pain goes away, even if it's for seconds, that second that it's not there. And if we can do that for people out here then why not," said El Paso resident Clarissa Douglas.

Twenty-two people were killed and more than two-dozen injured after a gunman opened fire inside a Walmart store in El Paso.
