Spherical 80 people of the public stuffed into the El Paso County Courthouse to investigate cross-take a look at the fundamental look of Patrick Crusius, who authorities protest admitted to focusing on Mexicans in the August 3 mass shooting.

Most of those killed in the shooting had Hispanic last names and eight were Mexican nationals. Police say he confessed to the August 3 mass shooting and that he targeted Mexicans.

The shooting, which was performed with an AK-47 assault rifle reportedly of Romanian origin, reignited debate in the USA about gun control and the causes of such grisly acts, as well as whether the massacres, most often performed by white men, should be classified as terrorist acts.
