El Paso — A man was shot in the leg after attending a party in North East El Paso, police say. The victim is in his late 20's and investigators add the shooting may be gang-related.
They say it all happened around 9 PM on Monday. The victim was attending a party near Fairbanks and Kirwood when the suspects drove by the home and shot at the house. Subsequently, the victim was shot in the leg and was transported to the hospital.
Police were at the scene for several hours leading into Tuesday morning and helicopters were searching for the suspects right after the shooting happened. Investigators say they may have a suspect but the investigation is still in its infancy and very delicate at this point.
No one else was injured in this incident, according to authorities.
