Crusius, 21, pulled his vehicle over at an intersection near the retail store after the mass shooting and got out of his auto with his hands up when officers pulled up, the report said.

The affidavit from Detective Adrian Garcia said Crusius waived his right to remain silent and, after being taken into police custody, "The defendant stated his target (was) Mexicans". He then told detectives he entered the Walmart store with an AK-47 assault rifle and several magazines, and that he was targeting Mexicans. This happened less than 24 hours before an unrelated mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio, where police have not issued a clear motive.

Lawyers for the family of the alleged gunman, Patrick Crusius, told U.S. media she was concerned about his fitness to possess the weapon.

The suspect has been charged with capital murder and federal authorities are considering charging him with hate crime and firearm charges.

As funerals were held Thursday in Mexico for some of the country's citizens who died in the El Paso shooting, a lawyer for the suspected gunman's family said they never heard him express racist views. It was unclear where Crusius was heading, though Allen has suggested that he did not know the area well and got lost in a neighborhood upon arriving.

If Hong Kong loses this foundation, the assets owned by the Hong Kong people could disappear overnight. Scores of protesters were arrested, sometimes after being beaten with batons and bloodied by police.

El Paso is about a nine-hour drive from Allen, where Crusius lived, and he apparently deliberately selected the city because of its heavily Hispanic population.

Crusius was 20 at the time the call was made.

Trump, who visited the kin of shooting victims in both El Paso and Dayton, had called for tighter reforms, ranging from a background check on gun buyers to amendments in the immigration legislation. His lawyer, appointed by the court, did not immediately comment about the filing; a judge on Friday agreed to appoint a second attorney for Crusius. "Many of our employees and most of our visitors live in El Paso, so we've all really been impacted by this bad tragedy".

Trump said that there is no justification for the killing of innocent people. The Republican governor said racism needs to be confronted and a crackdown initiated on internet sites used by violent extremists after three mass shootings in the state left more than 50 people dead since 2017. He was arrested on the day of the attack, surrendering to a police officer at an intersection just north of the store.
