Antifa was planning some kind of hoedown in El Paso. I'm wondering if this wasn't one of their planned activities.

The police say they had reports of multiple shooters. Same thing happened in California. We shall see but it seems witnesses to these things get confused by the sound of the report from firing echoing around them.

CNN claims the mayor, says there are 3 suspects in custody. This doesn't mean there were 3 shooters.

El Paso police just came on and said )ne in custody. The media is pumping multiple for ratings. They keep scrolling that even though the cop just said no multiple shooters.

This story has a photo of the suspected shooter entering Walmart holding what looks to me like AK style rifle.
