Police Claim Possible Multiple Shooters in El Paso Mall

The El Paso Police Department wrote on Twitter that the scene was still active but few other details were immediately available

Witnesses said gunshots rang out inside Walmart and at least one person collapsed to the ground.

During a press briefing, Sgt. Robert Gomez, a spokesperson for the El Paso police, said a rifle was used and that one male suspect is now in custody. The article claims police say there may be multiple shooters involved and warn the public to stay clear of the area.

Police didn't immediately provide details on whether anyone was hurt or in custody. It happened just after 11 a.m. local time (1 p.m. EDT).

Nearly an hour later, police gave an update, announcing that the scene "is still active".

"Just in - Video footage of police clearing out the entire Cielo Vista Mall in El Paso, #Texas".

El Paso, which is home to around 680,000 residents, is located in western Texas and sits across the border from Juarez, Mexico.

Gov. Dan Patrick explicitly warned the left-wing group Antifa against coming to the state following Saturday's mass shooting at an El Paso Walmart.

Democrat presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke said it was "truly heartbreaking".

"I heard the shots but I thought they were hits, like roof construction", said Adriana Quezada, 39, who was in the women's clothing section of Walmart with her two children at the time of the shooting.

"We're never going to give up to the shooters, never going to give up to the lawbreakers", he said.

At least three other businesses in the area are also on lockdown, including a Red Lobster franchise and a Hooter's location, CNN is reporting.

The Dallas division of the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms bureau tweeted that officials were on the way to assist El Paso police at the scene.

Three Walmart employees took refuge in Landry's. "But El Paso is the strongest place in the world".

"I'm thinking about El Paso, I want you to be thinking about El Paso as well", O'Rourke told the audience, taking the stage Saturday at a labor union forum in Las Vegas.

'Please follow all directions of emergency personnel as we continue to get more updates'.

This is a developing story.
