US President Donald Trump said there were no reasons or justifications for killing innocents, referring to the shooting in Texas.

“I send our heartfelt prayers to our people in Texas,” Trump was quoted as saying by the US Free Channel on Sunday in a condolence message to the victims’ families in his name and on behalf of First Lady Melania Trump. “Today’s shooting in El Paso, Texas was not only tragic, it was a cowardly act”, he said.

“I stand besides you today and everyone in this country to condemn this abhorrent act,” Trump said.

The US President Donald Trump continued to monitor the situation, noting that the President discussed the situation by telephone with Governor Greg Abbott and Minister of Justice Bill Bar.

In a shooting incident, a man armed with a rifle killed 20 people at a Walmart store here, injuring more than 24 others before being arrested by authorities, in the latest mass shooting incident in the United States.

Many visitors to the building were busy buying school equipment when trapped in the shooting incident, six days after a teenager shot three people at a food festival in Northern California.

“On a day when it is considered normal for a person to shop, it turns out to be the scariest day in Texas history,” Texas Governor Greg Abbott said in a press conference announcing the death toll.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said three of his people were killed and six others injured.

The latest incident is the eighth-largest mass shooting incident in modern US history after a similar incident in 1984 in San Ysidro, killing 21 people.

The suspect was identified as a white man from Allen, Texas, a town 1,046 kilometers east of the city and 21 years old.

Asked in a CNN interview on the online harassment report made by the suspect, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said he was not surprised.

“I think it helps explain why he did it. They are still questioning it, ”Paxton said.

According to authorities, the suspect was detained without incident. A video posted on social media shows the shooter being searched before being taken to a police vehicle.

Citing a source of law enforcement, a local television channel, KTSM released a picture of the suspect taken by security cameras while entering Walmart.
