August 3, 2019

Saturday afternoon Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus started tweeting that he and the band were on lockdown at their hotel in El Paso after reports came in that there was an active shooter in the vicinity. 

According to Hoppus he and the band had just finished breakfast and were about to head to the mall when they received a text from their security team. Earlier in the day, local authorities responded to an active shooter at the Wal-Mart near El Paso's Cielo Vista Mall; multiple deaths were confirmed.

Blink-182 is currently on tour with Lil Wayne; the two are scheduled to play the Haskins Center in El Paso on Sunday, August 4th.
