Victims are Ft. Bliss Soldiers

EL PASO - One man is dead, and two others injured, following a shooting in Northeast El Paso.

Fort Bliss officials confirm all three victims are Fort Bliss soldiers.

Police say the shooting happened around 2am Sunday morning in the 4300 block of Dyer. When officers arrived, one of the victims had already been taken to the hospital by his friends.

According to police, an officer was flagged down at Fred Wilson and Dyer as the gunshot victim was en route to the hospital. El Paso Fire Department EMS crews responded to the area and transported the wounded man for treatment.

The other two men were taken to an area hospital and are currently listed in serious condition.

The victims' names have not been released, but investigators identified them as black men, all 21 years of age.

El Paso Police Department Spokesman Javier Sambrano said there have been no arrests made as of 6:00pm Sunday. He said he couldn't comment on any suspects for fear of compromising the investigation.

Police said members of the U.S. Army Criminal Investigations Division are also assisting because the victims are all Fort Bliss soldiers.

This is the second murder in El Paso compared to one at this time last year.
