Patrick Crusius allegedly confessed to opening fire on a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, on Saturday afternoon, killing 20 people and injuring 26 more. The 21-year-old from Allen, a Dallas suburb, has been described as a short-tempered 'loner' with long-held animosity toward Mexican immigrants. The FBI released the photo above on Sunday

The 21-year-old college student accused of killing 20 and injuring 26 more at a Walmart in El Paso has been described by those who knew him as a short-tempered 'loner' with long-held animosity toward Mexican immigrants.   

Patrick Crusius is believed to be the man who opened fire on the Walmart at the Cielo Vista Mall, a popular shopping destination for people both sides of the US-Mexico border, on Saturday afternoon. 

Authorities are calling the attack an act of domestic terrorism and are considering hate crime charges against Crusius. The El Paso District Attorney's Office said Sunday it will seek the death penalty. 

Less than 20 minutes before the shooting, Crusius allegedly uploaded a twisted and seething anti-immigrant manifesto to an online forum outlining his sickening motives. 

The 2,300-word document titled 'The Inconvenient Truth', attributed to the author P._Crusius on one website, opens with the declaration: 'This attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas. They are the instigators, not me. I am simply defending my country from cultural and ethnic replacement brought on by an invasion.' 

Crusius revealed that he intended to target Hispanics in the shooting because they 'will take control of the local and state government of my beloved Texas' in a 'political coup which will hasten the destruction of our country'.

At the end of the document he writes that he expects the media to blame President Donald Trump and his rhetoric for the attack, noting: 'This is not the case.' 

'My ideology has not changed for several years. My opinions... predate Trump and his campaign for president,' he writes. 

Crusius also wrote that he expected to be killed in a confrontation with police or with one of the 'invaders', and that he would rather die than be taken into custody.

Jordan Anchondo, 25, was shot dead while shielding her two-month-old son from gunfire during a massacre at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, on Saturday. Anchondo's sister said she fears her brother-in-law Andre Anchondo was also among the dead because she hasn't heard from him since the attack. The couple are seen (right) in a wedding photo from a year ago

Crusius reportedly grew up 650 miles east of the shooting site in Allen, a wealthy and mostly-white suburb of Dallas. Police were seem swarming a home believed to belong to him in the wake of the shooting. 

A former neighbor of Crusius, Leigh Ann Locascio, said he was 'very much a loner, very stand-offish' and 'didn't interact a whole lot with anyone', according to the Los Angeles Times.

Locascio, whose son Tony used to walk to school with Crusius and his sister, said the alleged shooter typically walked ahead or behind them, uninterested in interacting.   

'He wouldn't talk to people. No one really knew him,' Tony Locascio said. He recalled that Crusius liked animals and kept pet snakes.  

Crusius briefly attended Liberty High School in Frisco and went on to graduate from Plano Senior High School. He enrolled at Collin College, a community college in McKinney, in 2017. 

Former classmate Jacob Wilson said Crusius was 'very strong-minded' during high school and would try to 'take charge' of other students, but many refused to work with him because he was 'irritable and had a short temper'. He also allegedly spoke negatively of classmates who played sports or were in the school band.  

Wilson said Crusius was bullied relentlessly by peers who targeted how he spoke and the fact that his clothes looked like hand-me-downs.  

'Every time I looked up in class it was someone new speaking negatively to the kid, 'Patrick that is dumb, stupid,'' Wilson said. 

Daniel Heo of Plano, Texas, had a very different recollection of Crusius, whom he attended Beverly Elementary School with. 

Heo said he remembers playing basketball and soccer with Crusius during recess, but they fell out of touch after elementary school.   

He told The Times he hadn't thought about Crusius in years until a friend texted him about the El Paso shooting and said his former classmate was a suspect.  

'I'm shocked. I remember him being a nice kid,' Heo said.

rafael monzon  lol many people are just sitting around either compplaining relying on politicians, or just thinking its a joke, when i watch the news i see those unfortinate events i study and observe the crimes, the reasons and who are commiting those crimes, so if people want to live life seriously they have to face th reality that this is a new way to express pain, whether or not we like it this is the easiest way to make people suffer and make politicians look stupid as well as showing people how weak those they realying on really are, like the police, they cannot stop the next event, it does not matter how many gun laws they change there is no way to stop it, because so many in the general public are so stupid they dont realize they have been so many gun laws and that never stop anything, with so many illegl guns flooding the streets there is nothing they can do even if they stop people from buying guns legally, take a ppalce like brooklyn they have no gun shops, no gun permits but everyday there is a shooting, the weeken didnt even start yet already 2 people dead from a shoot out last night, so wait until monday for the report, so whether or not many like what im saying it is bigger than me or them, i am just predicting what i see coming, and by the way look at the locations where those shootings are taking place
