Saucedo and her mother were having a rough morning August 3. They'd just put down their beloved German shepherd-chow chow mix, Sasha, after 13 years of companionship.

They headed to Walmart to do some grocery shopping and decided to get some breakfast at the McDonald's inside the store.

Men suspected in mass shooting at KCK bar have criminal histories

  Men suspected in mass shooting at KCK bar have criminal histories Two men suspected in a deadly mass shooting at a Kansas City, Kansas, bar early Sunday have had previous run-ins with the law on both sides of the state line. KMBC 9 Investigates has uncovered criminal histories for Javier Alatorre and Hugo Villanueva Morales, who are suspected of opening fire at the Tequila KC bar, killing four people and injuring five others.

The suspect in Saturday' s shooting at an El Paso shopping center faces capital murder charges and will be eligible for the death penalty, El Paso County District Attorney Jaime Esparza said in a news conference.

A shopper said he tried to scoop up many children at the mall in El Paso , Texas, where a gunman opened fire Saturday at a Walmart. He said he pulled out his weapon as he heard gunfire echo through Cielo Vista Mall, which abuts the Walmart. He didn't open fire, but as he fled he said he tried

The gun made such a horrible noise, she recounted. It sounded so powerful, booming inside the walls of the Walmart. Eventually, the gunshots stopped and a Walmart employee told the two to run out of the store and to get as far away as possible.

Saucedo walked outside and saw police, troops and an ambulance in the parking lot. Helicopters hovered overhead. People were crying and running. She flagged down a passing truck and requested a ride to her car in the back of the parking lot.

After police inspected her vehicle, she drove her mother home to safety, but in her mind, the shooting hasn't ended.

He was cooperative, police said, but showed no remorse for the shooting. One police official who came face to face with him described his expression as "stone cold."

About 20 minutes before the massacre, the suspected shooter is believed to have posted a 2,300-word manifesto, titled "The Inconvenient Truth," in which he employed white supremacist language, stated his opposition to "race mixing" and encouraged immigrants to return to their home countries.

"I'm probably going to die today," he wrote in the document posted to a site popular with white supremacists.

Federal authorities say they're treating the shooting as domestic terrorism, and District Attorney Jaime Esparza said he intends to seek the death penalty.

It doesn't sound like justice to Saucedo, she said. She wants Crusius to get a fair trial, she said, but if he's found guilty, he needs to spend the rest of his life thinking about his hateful act. An execution would be too merciful, she said.

"That's going to take 5 minutes. He needs to understand that he did wrong," she said. "I wish he stays in prison forever."
