On El Paso

by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:


An armed man, wearing hearing protection, apparently walked into a WalMart and started shooting. The number of dead is unknown; there are reports of anywhere up to 18 dead and many more wounded, or 1 dead and 18 total shot.  As with all incidents of this sort so-called “eyewitness” reports tend to be unreliable.

There was a heavy police and other federal presence in the area, perhaps because Antifa claimed to be massing there for some sort of “event.” Odds are there’s no connection, but you never know.  However, it does certainly appear to have enhanced the speed of the cops’ response.

The city is right across the border from Juarez, Mexico.
