Walmart vehicle pickup ending at downtown assistance center, only 30 cars remain

EL PASO, Texas - El Paso police announced that Saturday would be the final day to make arrangements at the downtown Family Assistance Center to pick up vehicles left in the Walmart parking lot following the mass shooting exactly one week ago.

The Family Assistance Center is located at the El Paso Convention Center and is open until 8 p.m. Officials said services would be provided regardless of immigration status, and Spanish speakers were available at the facility.

Police officials emphasized that the FAC would continue to operate from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily until further notice to provide other services -- only vehicle pickup is ending Saturday.

The vehicle pickup at the center is winding down because the FBI indicated that as of Saturday, only 30 vehicles were remaining out of the original 230 from the Walmart lot.

Come Sunday, police said any remaining vehicles would need to be picked up at the El Paso Municipal Impound Lot located at 11615 Railroad Drive.
