SOT, Greg Allen, El Paso Police Chief: "From this shooter we have 20 confirmed fatalities, and we have 26 wounded. Ages and genders of all these people injured and killed are numerous in the age groups. The situation, needless to say, is a horrific one."
SOT, Greg Allen, El Paso Police Chief: "Needless to say the scene is a horrific one, unfortunately. Because of the nature of the situation, the scene will be in play for a long period. Unfortunately, the deceased will remain at the scene until the scene is processed properly for evidentiary purposes."
SOT, Greg Allen, El Paso Police Chief: "The suspect was arrested at Sunmount [Drive] and Viscount [Boulevard] which is on the west side of the Walmart, where the initial shooting took place."
SOT, Greg Abbott, Texas Governor: "[...] to make sure that we were doing more than ever before, to keep students safe at schools. During that time, we did not — as far as I know — evaluate for and plan for an incident like this. That said, I can tell you that perhaps the most profound and agreed upon issue that came out of all of those hearings was the need for the state and for society to do a better job of dealing with challenging mental health-based issues."
SOT, Veronica Escobar, Congresswoman: "Without regard to this particular incident, not speaking about this particular incident which is still under investigation, but the manifesto narrative is fueled by hate and it's fueled by racism and bigotry and division."
