There are conflicting reports about the number of shooters, the weapon or weapons used and the exact figure of fatalities and injuries.

Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick told Fox News as many as 20 people are dead and that a 21-year-old man is in custody in connection with the shooting.

Initial reports suggest the weapon is an AK 47-style gun, but others indicate it could be a rifle.

KFOX14 have reported that police said 10 are dead and at least 30 are injured and said Homeland Security has been called in.

Witnesses said a shooter opened fire with a "rifle" or some other "semi-automatic" type weapon, KTSM 9 News reported.

El Paso Police spokesman Enrique Carillo told reporters that one man is in custody and confirmed there are multiple fatalities.

Police have not confirmed the identity of the shooter or if they are looking for a second gunman - but have said the situation is "fluid".

Graphic images show bodies on the floor covered in blood in the car park of the Walmart and inside the superstore.

A distressing video circulating on social media shows what appears to be victims laying motionless next to a fundraising table outside the front doors of Walmart.
