A man who came to the aid of another who was involved in a fight outside Jaguar's nightclub, ended up being shot in the chest, making this the Crime Stoppers “Crime of the Week.” 

Early Monday morning on April 2, a fight broke out in the parking lot the nightclub when a patron tried to help the person being assaulted. The victim received a gun shot to the chest and the person being assaulted was stabbed.

Officers discovered that a third person involved had been knocked out during the fight. Nobody involved could provide an adequate description of the assailant; only that he was an Hispanic male, approximately 30 years of age. Investigators received information that the assailant may possibly have been involved in a hit and run accident that occurred a few minutes later at Lee Trevino and Gateway West, but this has not been verified.

If you have any information at all about the identity of the suspect in this case, please contact Crime Stoppers of El Paso at 566-TIPS (566-8477), on-line at or you can send a text message by entering the key word CRIME1 (no space) plus your tip information, and text it to CRIMES (274637). You will remain anonymous and, if your tip leads to an arrest, you can qualify for a cash reward.
