A gunman reportedly stalked shoppers with a rifle in the aisles of a Walmart, killing 20 people and wounding 26 others Saturday. Police arrested Patrick Crusius, a White 21-year-old Dallas suburbanite they believe drove across Texas to carry out the attack. President Donald Trump tweeted condemnation of the “hateful act, saying no “reasons or excuses” justify killing innocents, while the FBI launched a terrorism probe.
What was the motive? Police are investigating whether Crusius posted an online “manifesto” praising the March New Zealand massacre at two mosques, saying America is “rotting from the inside out” and predicting that Hispanics will make Texas “a Democratic stronghold.”
