The gunman was named by local law enforcement sources as 21 year-old Patrick Crusius.

The details were some of the first to come out regarding the suspected gunman's movements in El Paso prior to the shooting Saturday. Tens of thousands of Mexicans legally cross the border each day to work and shop in El Paso.

Almost all of the places listed have been the sites of mass shootings in the USA, although the list was hardly exhaustive. "Not many people said Obama is out of control", read the quote from Brian Kilmeade.

The re-openings were announced Monday as El Paso grapples with the aftermath of a mass shooting that left more than 20 people dead.

"This is the Office of the Mayor of El Paso in an official capacity welcoming the office of the President of the United States, which I consider my formal duty", Margo said.

In response, Trump retweeted a quote from a news anchor on Fox News who said it was inappropriate for a former president to criticize a current one over a shooting.

The new deaths bring the death toll from the attack to 22.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott said Saturday's rampage in the heavily Hispanic city appeared to be a hate crime, and police cited a manifesto they attributed to the suspect as evidence that the bloodshed was racially motivated.

"After arriving in El Paso, Crusius got lost in a neighbourhood, and he found the Walmart because he was hungry", he said, adding that the accused cooperated with the police and volunteered "most of the evidence".

The shootings occurred within 13 hours of each other. In Dayton, Ohio, a gunman in body armour and a mask killed nine people in less than a minute and wounded 27 others in the city's downtown historic district before he was shot dead by police.

A Texas prosecutor said the state will seek the death penalty against Crusius if he is convicted.

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke and El Paso congresswoman Veronica Escobar have both come forward saying the President Trump is "not welcome" in El Paso.

The El Paso shooting was being investigated as a possible hate crime as authorities worked to confirm whether a racist, anti-immigrant screed posted online shortly beforehand was written by the man arrested.

El Paso has been reeling in the aftermath of Saturday's rampage at a crowded Walmart store, an attack believed to have been racially motivated against Hispanics.
