El Paso massacre suspect wrote an anti-immigrant 'manifesto' before the attack, authorities say

Within hours of the massacre Saturday at an El Paso Walmart, law enforcement officials confirmed they were investigating an anti-immigrant screed that the suspect, a 21-year-old with North Texas ties, appeared to post online before the shooting.
