The Cincinnati Bengals went on to announce that alongside the NFL Foundation they are donating $85,000 to help aid victims of Sunday's shooting in Dayton, which killed nine people. The gunman admitted that he was targeting Mexicans, according to detectives.

Crusius is believed to have posted a racist screed online shortly before the attack in which he railed against an "Hispanic invasion" of the United States.

The suspect is in police custody and is facing charges of murder.

Detective Adrian Garcia said in an arrest warrant affidavit that Patrick Crusius, 21, emerged with his hands up from a vehicle that was stopped at an intersection shortly after last Saturday's attack and told officers, "I'm the shooter".

Allen police said the call was made June 27 and lasted 10 minutes.

The first was in relation to a false burglar alarm at the family home, the second one occurred when Crusius was a passenger in a bus involved in a minor traffic accident. "She was concerned about her son buying a weapon online or at a retail establishment", he said. Under Texas law, 18 is the minimum age for buying a firearm from a licensed dealer, but 21 is the minimum age for handgun purchases.

Former U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke, who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, also attended and spoke to the crowd.

Authorities said Crusius drove 11 hours from his hometown of Allen, Tex., near Dallas, to perpetrate a massacre in the predominantly Hispanic city of El Paso.

"Our hearts and support are with the entire El Paso community and especially with the families of the victims of this very tragic event", said Cowboys Executive Charlotte Jones Anderson in a statement.

O'Rourke, who is from El Paso, has blamed President Donald Trump's rhetoric for spreading fear and hate, leading Trump to tweet that O'Rourke should "be quiet".

The White House could not immediately be reached for comment.

Meanwhile, several victims of the El Paso attack and another mass shooting which took place in OH less than 24 hours later and left nine people dead were being laid to rest. "This is purely a effect of the president of the United States being racist toward Mexicans".
