HOMICIDE IN FAR EAST EL PASO COUNTY

El Paso, TX - On September 20, 2022, at 05:48 am deputies with the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office received a 9-1-1 call in reference to a person who had possibly been shot.

As officers were investigating, they were directed to a residence near the intersection of Fawn and Bull Elk Dr. where several subjects were detained. Since then, Deputies have discovered a male subject and a vehicle that we believe are related in the desert area near the residence.

The Sheriff’s Office does not believe there is an ongoing threat to the area. There are schools in the area that were placed in lockdown, but that lockdown has since been lifted however the schools are still secured. The investigation is ongoing, and more details are forthcoming.
