Sgt. Enrique Carrillo told NPR 21-year-old Patrick Wood Crusius was in the left hand lane of an intersection when rangers pulled up behind him. Crusius told law enforcement members he wanted to kill as many Mexicans as possible, sources told ABC News.

On Friday, President Donald Trump, who travelled to El Paso earlier this week, pledged to take a "serious" look at passing new gun control measures to strengthen the background check system.
