El Paso Family Files Lawsuit Against Walmart for Lack of Security

Walmart is being hit with a lawsuit over the El Paso mass shooting last month.

The mass shooting at the El Paso Walmart resulted in the death of 22 people. Jessica and Guillermo Garcia were among the wounded.

The lawsuit accuses Walmart of failing to fulfill its legal responsibility to protect customers, alleging that no security guards were present to patrol the store.

According to CBS News, Jessica Garcia was shielded by her husband during the attack, blocking bullets fired in the shooting. She was hospitalized and has since been released.

Guillermo Garcia was shot multiple times in the spine and received over half a dozen surgeries. He remains hospitalized in critical condition.

CBS News reports this is the first suit filed against Walmart since the shooting.
