EL PASO, Texas (AP) — The Texas gunman who killed 23 people in a racist 2019 attack at a Walmart has returned to federal court for sentencing. Patrick Crusius is facing multiple life sentences after pleading guilty to one of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history. Investigators say Crusius posted an online screed before the shooting about an “Hispanic invasion of Texas.” The sentencing phase that started Wednesday draws to a close one of the U.S. government’s biggest hate crime cases. It could last several days. Crusius could still face the death penalty if convicted in a separate state case.
