Police investigating Saturday morning Downtown shooting

EL PASO, TX – An early-Saturday morning shooting in Downtown El Paso injures two men and triggers a manhunt by El Paso Police.

According to EPPD officials, the shooting happened along the 100 block of Anthony, just west the Civic Center.  Officers say that two groups of people may have been involved in some sort of verbal argument, when someone pulled out a shotgun from a vehicle.

EPPD investigators say the suspect with the shotgun hit one 25-year-old in the head the shotgun. The same man then fired the shotgun once, striking a 21-year-old in the face. The suspect with the shotgun then left the scene.

Officials add that none of the injuries are believed to be life threatening and both victims were treated at area hospitals.

While police first thought the incident was gang-related, they believe the situation was simply a verbal argument that escalated.

The investigation continues and police are asking anyone with information on this case to call 915-832- 4400 or Crime Stoppers of El Paso at 915-566-8477. Callers can remain anonymous and possibly qualify for a cash reward.
