Shooting was as at Walmart, which is next to Cielo Vista Mall.

www.ktsm.com...

There is a video from inside Walmart posted on the site. The Walmart employee did a good job of being calm and instructing the people on how to evacuate.

So they may have just been evacuating the mall as a precaution? I haven't seen anything about victims at the mall, just the initial reports of a shooting I saw referenced the mall rather than the Wal Mart.

That is clearly not welcome here, I don’t need to say why. Once people see things like this they can never unsee it.



It only shows people walking out to safety with hands up, escorted by police. Post shooting, Not during. (It's safe to watch)
See..

My guess is an employee. I work at Walmart, and we just had our quarterly active shooter training drop yesterday.

I'm not going to post but video is all over the place and it seems from looking there are fatalities ,unfortunately.

I hope they get these people quick.

If I were you I would book some vacation every quarter when these "drills" take place.

This video just has sound of shots in case anyone is interested in identifying gun type.

Not graphic but traumatic none the less.

I'd say school supply shoppers and tax-free weekend, except Texas doesn't have sales tax.

It's just a 5 or so minute video we all have to watch every 3 months. But it could trigger a psychotic employee to go over the edge.

I think it was 3 days ago someone got fired in Tennessee and came back to murder 2 managers. Walmart had a rough week.

3 people in custody?




UPDATE: 12:46 p.m. El Paso Mayor Dee Margo confirms to KTSM that there are multiple fatalities involved in today’s shooting at Walmart. Margo says that three suspects believed to be involved were taken into custody. El Paso Police are expected to give a press conference within the hour.

You can't really identify the gun from the sound unless it's a really particular niche weapon. The same gun can sound different being shot in slightly different locations. That's one thing that leads to some of the "2nd shooter" theories is people that don't understand this. It would really help if people got familiar with guns before they tried to comment on gun matters, but who am I kidding?

Wait, I thought the authorities always cover up the fact that other people were involved and it's always a lone wolf?

*facepalm*

Three in custody doesn't necessarily mean three were involved, but that would be odd unless it was a planned terror type attack.

Right, loosely identify

Also sometimes can get an idea if its more than 1 gun.

"No active shooter currently."

That's what the police are saying...and he also said they have tactical crews sweeping the area. They are asking that people NOT come to the mall. I'm sure they've got a perimeter set up and are turning people away from the area.

But if they are still sweeping the area with SWAT teams it sounds like they are making sure there are no more threats.

Multiple fatalities at multiple scenes, at the Walmart and inside the mall, El Paso police say. 3 people in custody, may or may not be related to the crime.


Now, they're saying 1 person in custody. El Paso is open carry, and many people pulled out their own guns when they first heard the shots ringing out. Very hard for police, who are also confiscating those people's guns.

Okay. I guess it would educate a nutjob on how to dodge security.

Very sad that some people are capable of doing these things.

Folks it appears we have to practice situational awareness in our own damn towns and cities. Here is some advice: when out and about put your cell phone in your pocket or purse, pay attention. Some people are oblivious as to what is about to transpire. Look for odd balls and people or situations that just don't fit in. Please always stay aware of your surroundings. If you see someone running, take cover or run like hell. A hot situation like this is no time to be curious. This is the world we live in and it is a dangerous world at that.
