Twenty people have been killed and 26 injured in a mass shooting at a Walmart store in the Texas city of El Paso.
Governor Greg Abbott described it as “one of the most deadly days in the history of Texas”.
Police are investigating whether the attack, which happened a few miles from the US-Mexico border, was a hate crime.
Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on Monday pushed the United States to support gun control legislation in response to a mass shooting in El Paso, Texas.

Of the 26 injured in the attack, at least nine were Mexican nationals, according to the government.
The Mexican leader’s request comes at a time of unprecedented violence in Mexico as drug cartels continue to fight over territory and smuggling routes.
