Accused El Paso mass shooter to face federal hate crime charges -source

·1 min read

AUSTIN, Texas, Feb 6 (Reuters) - The Texas man accused of deliberately targeting Mexicans in a shooting spree that killed 22 people at an El Paso Walmart store last year will be charged later Thursday with hate crimes, a source with direct knowledge of the case said.

Patrick Crusius, 21, is the suspected shooter. He is already facing a capital murder trial and has pled not guilty. The hate crime charges he will now face will be announced by investigators in Texas Thursday evening, said a source who spoken on condition they not be named as they were not authorized to speak with the media.
