Patrick Crusius, the 21-year-old man accused of killing 22 people at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas on August 3rd, pleaded not guilty to capital murder charges today.

 

Crusius walked into the 409th state District Court with Judge Sam Medrano presiding, wearing a dark suit, white shirt and glasses. After he was sworn in, he waived the reading of his indictment and pleaded not guilty.

 

The entire hearing lasted less than three minutes and he is due back in court on November 7th. The court gallery was jammed by about 80 people who came to witness the trial.

 

According to Dallas News, the crowd included a delegation from the Mexican Consulate. Eight Mexican citizens were killed in the attack and most of the victims had Hispanic last names. One person killed was a German citizen who lived in Ciudad Juarez, across the border from El Paso.

 

Prosecutors alleged that Crusius drove more than 10 hours from his hometown of Allen, near Dallas, to carry out the shooting, which also injured 24 people. Officials say two injured people remain in the hospital. Authorities said Crusius surrendered to police, saying “I’m the shooter” just blocks away from the scene.

 

He also told them he was targeting Mexicans who frequented the busy Cielo Vista shopping centre, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. Investigators also uncovered a manifesto published hours before the shooting that he allegedly wrote “in response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas.” Authorities said that the writings indicate a “nexus to a hate crime.”

 

Local prosecutors have said they will seek the death penalty. Federal authorities are weighing capital murder and hate crime charges. The Department of Justice has called the shooting an act of domestic terrorism. Crusius is being held without bond in an El Paso jail. He has been on suicide watch since shortly after his arrest and is separated from other prisoners.
