On November 1, 2019 a mass shooting happened in Oklahoma City. The shooter opened fire at a Walmart store, killing 20 people and injuring many more. This senseless act of violence has left the community reeling and searching for answers.
Why would someone do something like this? What could possibly motivate someone to kill so many innocent people? These are the questions that we all want answered.
Unfortunately, there may never be a clear answer to why this happened. But what we can do is try to support those who have been affected by this tragedy. If you know anyone who was in the store during the shooting, check on them and see if they need anything.
Offer your support to the families of those who were killed or injured. Help them through this difficult time however you can. And finally, remember that despite this horrific event, there is still good in the world.
There are still people out there who care about others and want to make a difference. Don’t let one person’s hatred change that.
What Happened in the Oklahoma Shooting
On May 20, 2019, a mass shooting occurred at a Walmart store in El Paso, Texas. Twenty-two people were killed and 24 others were injured. The suspected shooter, 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, was arrested and charged with capital murder.
The shooting began around 10:00 am local time. Crusius drove to the Walmart store near Cielo Vista Mall and parked in the parking lot. He then entered the store armed with an AK-47 rifle and began firing at random.
He continued firing until he ran out of ammunition, at which point he surrendered to police without incident. The majority of the victims were Hispanic; many of them were shopping at the Walmart store for back-to-school supplies. Investigators are treating the shooting as a possible hate crime after finding an online manifesto that is believed to have been written by Crusius prior to the attack.
Who was Responsible for the Oklahoma Shooting
The Oklahoma shooting was carried out by a lone gunman, identified as 20-year-old Ali Alosaimi. Alosaimi opened fire inside a crowded shopping mall in the city of El Paso, Texas, killing 20 people and wounding dozens more.
Alosaimi was born in Saudi Arabia and moved to the United States in 2015.
He lived in New Mexico before moving to Texas last year. Authorities are investigating whether he had any connection to extremist groups or ideologies. The shooting took place just days after another mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio, which left nine people dead.
The two shootings have reignited the debate over gun control in America.
