A Fort Bliss soldier with Killeen/Fort Hood ties was shopping near the El Paso Wal-Mart on Saturday when one man opened fire, killing at least 20 people and injuring 26 others.

According to the ArmyTimes, Pvt. 1st Class Glendon Oakley Jr. was shopping at a nearby Footlocker when a child ran inside the store and said there was a mass shooting. Oakley, who has a gun permit, drew his weapon and left the store.
