On the morning after a gunman killed 20 people and wounded dozens at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, fifteen hundred miles away - and less than 13 hours later - a gunman opened fire in a downtown district of Dayton, Ohio, killing nine people and wounding at least 26 others.

In all, the two mass shootings on Saturday and early Sunday claimed the lives of 30 people, including the gunman in Dayton, who was shot dead by police.

In El Paso, the alleged gunman surrendered to police.

He was identified by authorities as 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, who used a similar AK assault rifle.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott said the rampage appeared to be a hate crime.

Police and FBI investigators in Texas searched for more clues as to what motivated the suspect, who is from Allen, Texas, a Dallas suburb roughly 650 miles away from the heavily Hispanic border city.

The shooting in El Paso sent panicked shoppers running through the packed Walmart - many of them there to shop for back-to-school supplies.

The carnage ranked as the eighth-deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Pope Francis condemned the spate of attacks on who he described as "defenseless people" in the U.S., including a rampage last Sunday in Gilroy, California, that killed three people and wounded about a dozen.

President Donald Trump branded the shooting in El Paso as "an act of cowardice" on Twitter, while Democratic politicians again called for tighter gun control.
