A shooting at a supermarket in the USA state of Texas that left 20 dead is being investigated as "domestic terrorism", officials say.

Governor Dan Patrick told Fox News that a 21-year-old man is in custody in the shooting, which unfolded in the area of Cielo Vista Mall in El Paso.

A shooting near a shopping mall in El Paso, Texas has resulted in multiple fatalities, the El Paso police department and Mayor of El Paso confirmed.

"New Zealand's condolences go out to those killed and injured in the El Paso shooting and their loved ones", Ardern said before news of the OH shootings broke.

He also said this shooting will be investigated as a hate crime.

Citing a law enforcement source, El Paso television station KTSM published on its website what it said were two photos of the suspect taken by security cameras as he entered the Walmart.

While waiting to donate, 25-year-old Aguirre left to buy ice to keep water cold for those standing in line outside in the heat Saturday.

A local prosecutor announced that he would file capital murder charges, declaring that the alleged assailant had "lost the right to be among us".

Gov. Greg Abbott called the incident in the Texas border city "one of the most deadly days in the history of Texas". It lies along the Rio Grande across the border from Ciudad Juárez in Mexico.

Mexican officials said three Mexican nationals were among the dead and six more were wounded.

Surveillance video showed the suspect entering the store with a rifle while wearing ear protectors and camouflage trousers.

Whaley told reporters she was "amazed" by the quick response of the officers which she said prevented further deaths, but also stressed it would be a "very, very hard time" for families of victims.

R. Kelly Pleads Not Guilty, Denied Bail in NY Federal Case
The star's not guilty plea follows a previous plea entered by the star in which he denied 13 alleged sex trafficking charges. He's charged with racketeering, kidnapping and sexual exploitation of a child, and faces similar charges in a Chicago case.

The store was filled with as many as 3,000 people during what is a busy back-to-school shopping season.

"People were panicking and running, saying that there was a shooter", Kianna Long told Reuters news agency.

Initially Mr Oakley did not believe the child.

On Twitter, US President Donald Trump branded the shooting "an act of cowardice", adding, "I know that I stand with everyone in this Country to condemn today's hateful act. There are no reasons or excuses that will ever justify killing innocent people", he wrote on Twitter.

Two mass shootings at crowded public places in Texas and OH claimed at least 29 lives in less than 24 hours and left scores of people wounded, a shocking carnage even in a country accustomed to gun violence.

Heidi Beirich, director of the Southern Poverty Law Center's Intelligence Project, said the El Paso shooting suspect wasn't on her group's radar before the shooting. Harrowing videos have emerged on social media showing lifeless bodies lying outside and inside the store, as well as people taking cover inside the shop. "She herself had been to Ned Peppers the night before, describing it as the kind of place "where you don't have to worry about someone shooting up the place".

Sgt. Robert Gomez said investigators believe he is the only gunman involved and that he was taken into custody. He was around 5-foot-10-inches tall, thin and carrying a rifle, she said.

"But I thought they were hits, like roof construction", she said. "We also want everyone to feel safe and enjoy Summerfest. We were told to avoid the OR district". "So I get out there and do whatever I can do to help".

RAdriana Quezada said she was in the women's clothing section of the Walmart with her two children when she heard gunfire.

"Please stay tuned for further updates coming soon".

"This was a massacre", US Rep. Veronica Escobar, who represents the area, told CNN's Wolf Blitzer.

Officially few details have been released and there is no indication yet of any motive.
