Patrick Crusius, 22, was indicted on Thursday morning in connection with the 22 deaths, a news release from the District Attorney’s office said.

“Capital Murder is the highest charge in the State of Texas and is punishable by death or life imprisonment without parole if found guilty,” a news release said. “District Attorney Jaime Esparza will seek the death penalty.”
