A 25-year-old mother - who protected her two-month-old baby by shielding him with her body during the shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas - was one of the victims of the massacre. Jordan Anchondo had three children, his sister told the Associated Press, and gave his life for the youngest. She was one of 22 people killed by Patrick Crusius, 21, who was arrested by the police after the crime.

The young American opened fire inside the store on Saturday around 10:30 am, killing 20 people and injuring 26 others. Anchondo's sister, Leta Jamrowski, 19, told the AP that the two-month-old baby is in a hospital recovering after suffering broken bones from falling to the ground when his mother collapsed after Crusius shot him. "Judging from the baby's injuries, they said my sister was probably trying to shield it with her body," Jamrowski said. "When she was shot, she was carrying him and fell on top of him, so he has some broken bones. He is alive because she gave her life for him."

The sister added that she still does not know anything about her sister's husband, Andre Anchondo, and is concerned that he is among the victims of the tragedy: “[The authorities] said that if he were alive, the most likely thing is that he had already contacted”. The incident is so far being described as a hate crime as authorities are investigating white supremacist writings believed to be by Crusius. El Paso County District Attorney Jaime Esparza said the young man could face the death penalty, reports CNN.

Less than 24 hours after the El Paso shooting, 9 people were killed and 26 others were injured when another attacker opened fire at a popular nightlife area in Dayton, Ohio.

President Donald TrumpHe expressed in a speech that the country felt "shock, horror and sadness" after "this weekend more than 80 people were killed or wounded in two macabre attacks." Trump also clarified that the country must "condemn racism, fanaticism and white supremacy." "There is no room for hate in the United States," he added, speaking of the dangers of the Internet in its connection to domestic terrorism and human trafficking, among other crimes. The president said that she and First Lady Melania Trump are praying for the victims and their families. Trump said there could be no division in the country and that it was time to come together to seek solutions against the mass shootings. "We must stop the glorification of violence in our society," he said, citing violent video games as a factor in these crimes.

The president made a mistake at the end of the speech - speaking of the victims of Toledo, rather than Dayton, where the shooting occurred. "God bless the memory of those who died in Toledo," he said, referring to the tragedy in Dayton, Ohio. Trump also highlighted the importance of recognizing "red flags" or warning signs to identify people with mental illnesses that may be a risk to the safety of other citizens, and spoke of implementing new safety and mental health standards.
