El Paso residents mark the anniversary of Walmart shooting
The shooting on Aug. 3, 2019 killed 23 people.
El Paso is marking the anniversary of a shooting at a crowded Walmart by remembering the 23 people killed. Authorities have said the gunman traveled from his home near Dallas to target Latinos in the Texas border city on Aug. 3, 2019. Events to mark the anniversary of the shooting in the largely Hispanic city have taken on a new look amid the global pandemic: parks lit with lanterns that people can walk or drive through; private tours for victims’ families at a museum exhibit of items preserved from a makeshift memorial; and residents being asked to show support with online posts.
