U.S. Attorney John F. Bash along with other federal law enforcement personnel will host a news conference to brief the public on the latest information regarding the El Paso mass shooting case, where 22 died and several others were injured 

21-year-old Patrick Crusius of Allen, Texas was apprehended by law enforcement on the day of the Aug. 3 shooting near the Cielo Vista Walmart, where the killings took place.

The U.S. attorney for the Western District of Texas announced the following day that the case will be treated as domestic terrorism case. 

Crusius pled not guilty at an arraignment hearing last October but his lawyers said they will need more time to look through all the evidence.
