EL PASO - The El Paso County Sheriff's Office has captured a suspect wanted for firing a bb gun at deputies.
Alex Silva, 22, was featured in Manhunt Monday earlier this month. Deputies say he was allegedly firing his bb gun at several houses in the 8600 block of Essex near Westway. When deputies arrived, they say Silva fired shots at them.
No one was hurt, but Silva was wanted for aggravated assault on a public servant.
Over the Fourth of July weekend, deputies say Silva was a passenger in a car they stopped, but he jumped out of the car and ran.
Silva was arrested early Sunday morning after he was spotted trying to enter a night club in Union Plaza in Downtown El Paso. He is the Sheriff's Office 84th Manhunt Monday Capture.
