The 21-year-old man who killed 22 people in an El Paso Walmart told police following his arrest that he was targeting “Mexicans.”

The document charging Patrick Crusius, from Allen, Texas, with murder also described the circumstances of his arrest, saying he stepped out of his vehicle when surrounded by police, put his hands up and said: “I’m the shooter.”

Crusius waived his right to remain silent or have a lawyer present and told detectives that “his target (was) ‘Mexicans.”

Prior to carrying out the attack Saturday, Crusius published a white supremacist manifesto online which expressed fears of a “Hispanic invasion” of Texas.
