Pitt football coach Pat Narduzzi posted a note Saturday to the people of El Paso saying they remain “in our hearts and prayers” after a man opened fire at a Walmart in the city and killed 20 people.

Narduzzi posted this message to his Twitter account: “Eight months ago the people of El Paso gave us an unforgettable experience in their beautiful city. They made us feel like family. We share their grief and they will remain in our hearts and prayers in the days ahead.”

The Panthers played the Stanford Cardinal on New Year’s Eve 2018 at the Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas. They lost 14-13.

Federal authorities said Sunday the shooting at a crowded El Paso shopping area Saturday morning will be handled as a domestic terrorism case. Hate-crime charges against the gunman that would carry the death penalty are also possible. The suspected gunman was arrested.

The attack in Texas was followed hours later by another one in Dayton, Ohio, where a gunman wearing body armor and carrying extra magazines opened fire in a popular nightlife area, killing nine and injuring at least 26 people. The suspected shooter was shot to death by responding officers.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
