UPDATE: Police responded Saturday to reports of a mass shooting at a Walmart near Cielo Vista Mall in El Paso, with at least 18 people shot and 1 killed.

The El Paso PD issued a tweet warning that the scene is still active.

ATF agents are en route to assist the El Paso police at the scene of the shooting, and multiple videos have surfaced from inside the Walmart during the attack.

Witness Ray Holgin told CBS News that he was about to go into the Walmart when he heard at least 10 gunshots, and said he thought he spotted at least two people with guns. He also said he saw an elderly lady fall to the ground, but it is unclear if she was shot.

Video from social media shows the scene is still active with first responders working diligently. Volunteers have also showed up by the hundreds to donate blood to the victims.
