Patrick Crusius: the man behind the El Paso mass shooting

21-year-old Patrick Crusius from Allen, Texas is the man who opened fire in a Walmart store on Saturday in Texas, killing 20 and injuring at least 26 others.

The suspect is believed to have posted a manifesto on a website called 8chan before embarking on the mass shooting.

In the manifesto, the suspect was not happy that Texas was been ‘overwhelmed’ by immigrants, especially those of Hispanic origin.

“If we can get rid of enough people, then our way of life can be more sustainable,” the manifesto which is alleged to be penned by the suspect reads.

The suspect expressed support for the Christchurch mosque, New Zealand shooting where 51 people were killed in two separate attacks in March. The manifesto said that immigrants were taking up the native jobs and thus immigration needs to come to an end.

The 21- year- old is now in police custody, after surrendering to authorities.

The US president, Donald Trump, has condemned the attack and termed it as “an act of cowardice”.
