A 4-month-old infant and two children have been identified as victims of the Walmart shooting in El Paso, Texas on Aug. 3.
A representative for the University of Medical Center in El Paso indicated that a 2-year-old and a 9-year-old are now stabilized after first responders rushed them to the hospital following the Saturday morning shooting, CBS News reported. The two children have now been transferred to the neighboring El Paso Children’s Hospital.
The 4-month-old baby was also being treated at the University of Medical Center, but the infant’s condition is not yet known.
Eleven other people from the shooting were taken to the Del Sol Medical Center. The victims taken to Del Sol are adults, ranging in age from 35 to 82. While nine are in critical condition, two others are in stable condition.
As TheBL previously reported, twenty people were killed and more than two dozen injured in the shooting.
The shooting happened at about 1 p.m. local time at the El Paso Walmart of Hawkins and Gateway East boulevards.
Witness Vanessa Saenz, who had her 1-year-old son with her, spotted the alleged shooter, told Fox News that the man was holding a dark rifle while pointing and shooting at people. She said the suspect was wearing a black shirt, cargo pants, and had ear muffs on.
“He was just pointing at people and just shooting straight at them,” Saenz said. “I saw three to four [people] fall to the ground.”
Saenz also added that she saw the suspect casually stroll into the Walmart, “nonchalant as if he was on a mission.”
The suspected gunman was identified by authorities as 21-year-old Patrick Crusius.
