The Gunman has Been Booked on Capital Murder Charges
EL PASO, Texas (AP) -A hospital official says another victim of the weekend mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, has died.
Dr. Stephen Flaherty, of the Del Sol Medical Center, says the patient was one of two victims of Saturday’s attack to die at the hospital on Monday. Police earlier announced the death of one of the patients.
The new deaths bring the death toll from the attack to 22. More than two dozen other people were wounded.
The suspected gunman, 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, has been booked on capital murder charges.
The attack happened hours before a separate mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio, in which nine people were killed and others were wounded.
