Officials provide an update on the El Paso Walmart shooting | USA TODAY

Multiple people are dead and a white man in his 20s is in custody after a lone gunman went on a shooting rampage Saturday morning at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.

With the shooting, a busy weekend shopping day turned into horror. The Walmart was “at capacity,” and at a mall across the parking lot, 1,000 to 3,000 people were shopping, El Paso Police Sgt. Robert Gomez said. Videos posted to social media show shoppers scrambling for cover, their hands raised. Police said the scene is now under control, and there is no imminent threat.
