El Paso residents are grieving, and angry. The town on the border of Texas and Mexico was one of two communities hit by mass shootings last weekend. A gunman opened fire in a Walmart in El Paso on Saturday, killing 22 people and injuring dozens more. Less than 24 hours later, 9 people were killed and 27 injured by a shooter in Dayton, Ohio.

Lauren Villagran, a border reporter for the El Paso Times and the USA Today Network, joins Intersection to talk about how the community is responding to the shooting.
