'We're going to do what we do to terrorists in this country': Authorities seek the death penalty for El Paso suspect

U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Texas John Bash said Sunday that he has been in contact with Attorney General William Barr about the case against the person allegedly responsible for killing 20 people and injuring many others in El Paso, Texas on Saturday.

He says the U.S. government is working toward bringing federal hate crime charges and federal firearms charges against the suspect, which would carry a penalty of death.

He also said they are also treating it as a domestic terrorism case since it appears to be designed to intimidate the civilian population, adding that, “We’re going to do what we do to terrorists in this country.”

El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen said the suspect has basically told them everything (via ABC):

“He was forthcoming with information. He basically didn’t hold anything back,” El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen said during Sunday’s news conference, declining to comment on specifics of what the alleged gunman told investigators.

District Attorney Jaime Esparza says the state of Texas will be seeking a capital murder charge and the suspect would be eligible for the death penalty.
