El Paso shoot: Facebook shuts down Patrick Crusius social media accounts

Few hours after he successfully killed scores of innocent people, Facebook Inc has removed the Facebook and Instagram accounts of Patrick Crusius.


Crusius is the suspected shooter at El Paso. 
The social media giant said it is working with law enforcement after the shooting in Texas.


“Our thoughts are with the victims and their families. Content that praises, supports or represents the shooting or anyone responsible violates our Community Standards and we will continue to remove as soon as we identify it”, Facebook’s spokesperson said.


 His Twitter account was also shut down while investigation is still on going.


According to what federal law enforcement sources told CNN,  investigators are reportedly reviewing a “manifesto” posted days before the shooting that may lead to a motive.
 The online posting was believed to be written by Crusius.
