SHERIFF’S OFFICE ARRESTS ONE INDIVIDUAL FOLLOWING REQUEST FOR EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAMS

August 21, 2020

El Paso, TX On August 19th, 2020, at approximately 11:30am the Horizon Police Department and Socorro ISD Police Department requested the assistance of the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Response Teams.

The agencies had responded to a barricaded subject with a gun and a child at a residence located in the 14500 block of Escalera Dr. as a result of an outcry that a student made to an SISD employee while attending a virtual class. 41-year-old Edgar Shum refused to exit his residence and had also threatened a family member with a handgun prior to law enforcement responding.

The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Response Teams arrived on scene and Crisis Negotiators were able to peacefully negotiate Shum’s surrender. The child was unharmed and reunited with family members.

Shum was arrested and booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility for Aggravated Assault Family Violence.

No other information is available at this time.
