Charlie Minn’s documentary film titled ‘915’ offers disturbing look at Walmart shooting

EL PASO, Texas -- It's been nearly a year since the Cielo Vista Walmart mass shooting claimed the lives of 23 people.

For months, director Charlie Minn has been gathering video and interviews from the victims for a documentary film titled “915.”

A focus group attending a screening Wednesday night before the documentary is released got to see some disturbing scenes.

Minn didn’t hold back— leaving many of the extremely graphic scenes from the shooting raw and not blurred in his film.

“What has more impact - telling you 25 people got shot or showing you 25 people got shot? I think it’s so much more important to see exactly what's going on,” Minn said.

Some of those invited to the screening said those graphic details were a necessity.

Minn’s film also has interviews from victims, witnesses and good Samaritans who stopped to help.

With so many raw moments and details in the film, Minn said he’s not sure how the Borderland will react.

“I don’t know what people are going to think about this thing, this is the most brutal honest look on what happened August 3rd, 2019,” he said. “There are going to be people who like it and people who hate it, but everybody is going to want to see it.”

The final cut of the film will be publicly released Oct. 9.

  1. Everyone should take notice that this is what happens when you elect a racist demagogue to the Presidency and give him a chance to spew hate to the weak minded. There are millions more like Crusius who support the orange buffoon and they need to be closely monitored and should never have access to firearms. It would also help if we could get the NRA put on the list of terrorist organizations and monitor their membership very closely.

    1. Everyone should take notice markturner is an idiot. Another anti-Trump rant from the moronic buffoon. He was not a Trump supporter. You too stupid to read his manifest? The heinous shooter was lured to El Paso by leftist politicians like Escobar and Beto spewing non-stop pro illegal immigration rhetoric. It is their fault these people are dead. You need to be closely monitored because you are an anti-American subversive communist. I’m a NRA member. Why don’t you get off your fat ass and come monitor me. Make my day.

          1. You are a left wing moron. Far left communist. AOC is your idol. You couldn’t monitor kids on a playground.

    2. Delusional much turner? Your rant just follows your brother demoKKKrats talking points. No substance, just maniacal rage over made up garbage. You support biteme because your so called party can manipulate a demented old fool to do what marxists do. Just ask Angela Davis. She just came out and said so.

    3. Texas will go for President Trump. 38 electoral votes. At RCP the CBS/YouGov and OAN/Gravis polls have President Trump up over Biden. That Dallas Morning News polls was an outlier. You know it’s bad for Biden when UT had Trump up by 4 points over Biden. Leftist polls are weighted in favor of Democrats.

        1. Stony Brook political science professor, Helmut Norpoth, has predicted successfully the outcomes of five of the past six presidential elections since 1996, and he’s now predicting that President Donald Trump has a 91% chance of winning the election in November.

          Norpoth’s proven model, called the “Primary Model,” uses data from early primary election results, rather than opinion polls, to predict base excitement. He told Mediaite last week that his model would have accurately predicted the outcome of all but two presidential elections since 1912.
          “The Primary Model gives Trump a 91 percent chance of winning in November,” Norpoth said. “This model gets it right for 25 of the 27 elections since 1912, when primaries were introduced.”

        1. Aren’t you the local antifa? Those white antifa idiots in Oregon and Washington are probably laughing at you. White guys claiming black lives matter.

  2. I would say the local 5 racists bigots……Madmike and his ladies. But too old to even kill a fly. But definatley I’d watch their offspring.

          1. He has you confused with some idiot in Maryland. Anne Arundel County. Shows you how stupid he is.

    1. In denial? LMAO. Go to your favorite site Real Clear Politics (RCP) dolt. Texas General Elections. Regardless Biden will lose. Your lies won’t prevent that. When you rant here you are preaching to the choir.
