After a devastating mass shooting, El Paso’s community pulled together to donate blood.
A gunman opened fire in a Walmart on Saturday morning, injuring at least 23 people, CNN reports. Police confirmed “multiple” fatalities. This is the 249th mass shooting in the United States this year, according to the Gun Violence Archive, which means there have been more mass shootings than days in 2019.
The City of El Paso put out an urgent call for blood donors as hospitals drained their supply to treat the victims.
