The El Paso Police Department has secured a warrant for 23-year-old Andray Harris of 309 E. Mills in connection with shooting two rounds at an EPPD Officer at the DeSoto Hotel in Downtown El Paso on Thursday afternoon.

El Paso Police say they will be charging Harris with Criminal Attempted Capital Murder. Harris is currently being treated at University Medical Center and will be booked upon his release.

A search of Harris' criminal record indicates that he was involved in an alleged aggravated robbery and was also allegedly in possession of 5.4 grams of crack cocaine in Northeast El Paso in October of 2013. 

Harris Bond was set at $500,000. EPPD says they recovered the weapon Harris used during the shooting inside of his hotel room at the DeSoto Hotel.

Police will release Harris' most recent mugshot when he is released from UMC.

EDITORS NOTE: Mugshot included in this story is from Harris' previous arrest in October 28, 2013. He has not been convicted in connection with that alleged incident.
