KTSM-TV posted still images from Walmart surveillance video:
The killer left a manifesto on 8Chan before his shooting rampage.
It was posted at 8chan before the first EMS call.
You may have heard that the manifesto of the El Paso shooter is a hoax. Well, if it is, why was it posted (and credited to) the shooter hours before the shooting? pic.twitter.com/JUJQ4Ueq2y

Here is the manifesto of the El Paso shooter. This same rhetoric can be heard at Trump rallies. pic.twitter.com/HRXv92YdyF

Glory is what these men want. Don’t say the El Paso’s shooter’s name, don’t share his picture, or his (possibly entirely fake) manifesto. Media orgs should follow, as much as possible, these guidelines for reporting as well: https://t.co/79ZMLgZ7CE pic.twitter.com/w1Z2QaeDjS
