'Act of cowardice': Gunman kills 20 at a store in El Paso, Texas

Aug 04, 2019 07:34 IST

At least 20 people were killed and over 26 injured in a shooting at an El Paso shopping centre in Texas. The gunman, identified as 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, surrendered to the police near the shooting scene. Authorities are looking into whether the shooting was a hate crime, investigating a 'manifesto' allegedly written by the gunman that sympathises with the man charged with killing 51 people this year at New Zealand's Christchurch. US President Donald Trump has condemned the shooting, calling it 'an act of cowardice'.
