EL PASO - It seems spillover violence has hit the UTEP campus. At least one of the bullets from yesterday's shootout has been found in a university building tonight.
We're told the bullet struck the South door of Bell Hall, went through the glass panel and was found embedded in an office doorframe. Police believe it happened during the gunbattle in Juarez last night that caused police to shut down Paisano Dr. from Executive to Downtown.
A second bullet from last nights shootout in Juarez may have struck an El Paso car.
We first showed you this car last night, the windshield is completely shattered. Officers checked the surrounding area for injuries or property damage but nothing was found.
They say they're not sure yet if a bullet from Juarez caused the damage.
