UPDATE : Alleged shooter cased El Paso Walmart before rampage that killed 22: Officials

A gunman opened fire Saturday morning at a Walmart in El Paso.

The suspect in the killing rampage at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, allegedly cased the store, looking for Mexicans to kill before he came back and unleashed a barrage of gunfire that left 22 people dead and more than two dozens injured, law enforcement officials told ABC News.

The latest twist in the investigation of the mass shooting came just hours after doctors in El Paso confirmed that two more victims had died from bullet wounds suffered in the Saturday morning massacre — increasing the death toll to 22.
