El Paso marchers call for stronger gun laws

Patrick traveled to El Paso to carry out the shooting that killed 22 people and wounded over 20 people.

The gunman confessed to officers while he was surrendering and later explained that he had been targeting Mexicans.

The attack at a Walmart store left 22 people dead, majority Hispanic.

The affidavit said Crusius waived his right to remain silent after he was taken into custody and told detectives he entered the Walmart with an AK47 and multiple magazines.

More than 100 people have marched through downtown El Paso, Texas, on the one week anniversary of a mass shooting that authorities say was carried out by a gunman targeting Mexicans in the Texas border city.

"The fund is working with the County of El Paso and the City of El Paso to aid affected families", the team said in a statement shared on their official Twitter page, alongside a link where fans could join them in giving a donation.

RAFAEL NADAL says his serve got him out of trouble as he survived a scare from Fabio Fognini to reach the Rogers Cup semi-finals. Earlier on Friday, the eighth-seeded Medvedev needed just under 57 minutes to finish off Thiem, the No. 2 seed from Austria.

And, according to police, shortly before the attack, Crusius is believed to have posted a racist message online. The Cincinnati Bengals and the NFL Foundation are donating $75,000 to the fund, which will help families affected by Sunday's mass shooting.

The shootings in Texas and OH were the 21st and 22nd mass killings of 2019 in the US, according to the AP/USA Today/Northeastern University mass murder database that tracks homicides where four or more people killed - not including the offender. Federal prosecutors are weighing hate-crime charges.

Family members of the victims gathered at funerals on either side of the border Friday to remember their loved ones.

Former US Representative Beto O'Rourke, who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, also attended and spoke to the crowd.

The document parrots some of President Donald Trump's divisive rhetoric about immigration but the writer said his views pre-date Mr Trump's rise and that any attempt to blame the president for his actions was "fake news".

The Washington Post reported that tech leaders expressed doubts about how much it was possible to use technology to identify potential attacks before they occur, raising concerns about privacy risks, according to sources at the meeting.
