Original Story Follows:

El Paso Police Department officers are responding to an active shooter situation at a Walmart store and the Cielo Vista Mall, according to a report by KVIA ABC7 in El Paso. The article claims police say there may be multiple shooters involved and warn the public to stay clear of the area.

KTSM NBC9 reports 18 people may have been shot at the Walmart.

While local media reports multiple people being shot, no fatalities are reported at this time.

Photojournalist Jorge Salgado tweeted video from the scene showing police in tactical gear responding to the mall.

Before any details of the shooting are known, an apparent gun control activist wasted no time in mocking Texas over a mass shooting situation.

Images from KFox14 in El Paso show U.S. Border Patrol agents assisting local law enforcement officers. While a video apparently shot inside a store shows the chaotic scene of customers being evacuated and told to keep their “hands up!”

The El Paso Times is also reporting police saying there are multiple shooters. Stores in the surrounding area are also being evacuated as a precaution.
