TERROR: White supremacist opens fire, kills 20 in Texas in USA
WASHINGTON: A suspected white supremacist gunman opened fire at shoppers in El Paso town in Texas, America. As many as 20 persons were killed in the attack.
The suspect has been identified as Patrick Crusius. He has been taken into custody and is being interrogated. Initial reports suggest that it was a hate crime, targeting the Hispanics.
President Donald J Trump has expressed grief and tweeted, "Terrible shooting in Elpaso, reports are very bad, many killed. working with state and local authorities and law enforcement...God be with you all".
More than 248 mass shootings have been reported in USA alone, this year so far. Statistics clearly suggest that domestic white extremists pose the biggest threat in the country, far ahead of any other group or believers of any other ideology.
