“Agents and police officers at the intersection then observed a male person ‘ the defendant ‘ exit out of the vehicle with his hands raised in the air and stated out loud to the agents, ‘I’m the shooter,’ ” the document states.

It appears the alleged shooter somehow evaded El Paso Police Department officers who arrived at the store about six minutes after receiving calls about a disturbance at the popular shopping center, which then became calls about a shooting in progress.

‘I’m the shooter’: Accused El Paso gunman told police he was targeting Mexicans

The man accused of gunning down 22 people at an El Paso Walmart last week confessed to the grisly crime and admitted he was targeting people of Mexican descent, according to unsealed court documents Friday.

Patrick Crusius, 21, later waived his Miranda rights against self-incrimination and spoke with detectives.

The writer said he was angry about Mexican immigration long before the election of President Donald Trump, who based much of his 2016 campaign on building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
