East Side Shooting
El Paso - A man hears his doorbell ring in the middle of the night and, thinking it was a family member returning home, is shot through the door by unknown assailants, making this the Crime Stoppers “Crime of the Week.”
On Sunday, April 18th, at 2:45 A.M., the victim and his wife and two daughters were at their house in the 11600 block of John Weir on the eastside when the victim heard his doorbell ring. Believing his older daughter was returning from a night out, the victim went to the door and, through the peephole, saw a man standing there. At that point, another man stepped out from the dark and blasted the front door several times with a shotgun, injuring the victim in the process. The two suspects then fled on foot, running west on John Weir.
The two suspects are believed to be Hispanic males in their late 20’s or early 30’s. One was wearing a grey sweatshirt with a hood pulled up over his head. The other suspect was wearing a dark green sweatshirt. The suspects were heard to speak both English and Spanish.
If you have any information about the identity of these suspects, call Crime Stoppers immediately at 566-TIPS (566-8477) or on-line at www.crimestoppersofelpaso.org. You will remain anonymous and, if your tip leads to an arrest, you can qualify for a cash reward.
