Two more victims of the El Paso shooting died at Del Sol Medical Center on Monday, bringing the death toll from the attack to 22, according to hospital officials. More than two dozen other people were wounded.

The suspected gunman, 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, has been booked on capital murder charges.

Speaking from the White House on Monday, President Trump condemned the El Paso mass shooting and another in Dayton, Ohio, hours later in his first public remarks since the attacks.


The attack in Dayton left nine people killed and others wounded.

The massacre of 20 people by a man who reportedly wanted to shoot “as many Mexicans as possible” marks what appears to be one of the deadliest hate crimes ever against Latinos.
