SAN ANTONIO – The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office announced two locations where local residents can donate blood to help victims in El Paso.
At least 20 people were killed and over two dozen were injured when a 21-year-old man opened fire at a shopping complex Saturday morning.
Most of the victims were shot at a Walmart near the Cielo Vista Mall, El Paso police Sgt. Robert Gomez said at a news conference. He said the store was packed with as many as 3,000 people during the busy back-to-school shopping season.
