El Paso 'Hero' Detained at White House on Arrest Warrant

El Paso 'hero' arrested by Secret Service before meeting Trump at White House: report

In addition, El Paso police said video surveillance of the shooting does not show what the alleged "hero" claimed. He said Grant was visible in the footage but did not reveal what his actions were.

Last month, still attached to hospital monitors, 50-year-old Christopher Grant told CNN's Chris Cuomo how he was shot on August 3 inside of a Walmart in El Paso, Texas. "We saw his actions ... and it's not like he described".

President Trump was to present Grant, along with four other civilians, a Heroic Commendation in a White House ceremony Monday.

"On Monday, Sept. 9, 2019, a White House visitor with an arrest warrant was temporarily detained by U.S. Secret Service Uniformed Division Officers", a spokesperson for the Secret Service explained to the Washington Examiner. A police spokeswoman confirmed that the detained person was in fact Grant.

It is not clear where the case stands and Grant did not immediately respond to a request from ABC News for comment. Lying in a hospital bed with tubes sprouting from his nose, Grant choked up describing the attack. And then one went right towards him and then that's when he saw me. "To deter him, I started just chucking bottles. I'm not a baseball player, so one went this way and one went that way".

Capital murder is the highest charge in Texas, Esparza's office said, and is punishable by death or life in prison without parole.

"I did what any good man would have done", he said. "He just - boom, boom, boom, boom, boom - just started firing off rounds at me".

Canada: plane forced to make emergency landing after after hitting several geese
The Swoop aircraft's pilot announced an emergency landing would have to be made and the plane returned to Abbotsford Airport. In a tweet, it thanked the captain and crew for ensuring the safety of everyone on the flight.

Grant's mother accepted the commendation on his behalf, the El Paso Times reported.

Grant was indeed shot twice near his rib cage, according to The El Paso Times, and his sister shared on Facebook that he underwent at least two surgeries.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott acknowledged weeks after the attack that "mistakes were made" when he sent a fundraising mailer encouraging supporters to "take matters into our own hands" and "DEFEND" Texas. Trump also praised him during the White House ceremony, saying he'd thrown bottles at the shooter, causing him to "turn toward Chris and fire at Chris, whereby Chris suffered two serious gunshot wounds".

"We welcome 11 extraordinary American heroes", Trump said to open the ceremony.

"Nobody bothered to check with us", Carrillo told the Examiner.

But El Paso Police Sgt. Enrique Carrillo said video did not match Grant's account.

Grant was interviewed previously by CNN's Chris Cuomo, where he claimed to have tried to stop the shooter. "The video evidence of the scene does not support Mr. Grant's assertions".
