Ninety consecutive life sentences are given to the shooter in the Texas Walmart massacre that resulted in 23 deaths, he may still be put to death penalty

Patrick Crusius, a white gunman who pleaded guilty to nearly 50 federal hate crime charges in the 2019 mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, was sentenced to 90 consecutive life sentences. Crusius, who killed 23 people in a racist attack on Hispanic shoppers at a Walmart, was wearing a jumpsuit and shackles and showed no reaction during the hearing. U.S. District Judge David Guaderrama recommended that Crusius serve his sentence at a maximum security prison in Colorado. He still faces a separate trial in a Texas court that could end with him getting the death penalty for carrying out one of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history.
