Patrick Crusius, 21, was charged last week with 90 counts of hate crimes.

His attorneys David Lane and Rebecca Hudsmith made the filing on the question of whether the death penalty should be sought.

He is accused of driving 11 hours to El Paso from his hometown of Allen, near Dallas, on Aug. 3, 2019, and firing at shoppers with an AK-47 rifle inside the Walmart store. He surrendered to officers who confronted him outside.

When he was taken into police custody minutes after the shooting, Crusius was in a psychotic state and treated with anti-psychotic medication, according to mental health professionals employed by the jail, the July 11 filing said.

A manifesto that prosecutors say was posted online by Crusius on 8chan, a now-defunct message board often used by extremists, said the Walmart attack was "a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas."
