Police identify 26-year-old man killed in officer-involved shooting


EL PASO, Texas — Police have identified the man who was killed in an officer-involved shooting Sunday as 26-year-old Ryan Shane Hinojo.

At approximately 2:49 p.m. on Sunday, officers received a call of an assault in progress at the 12000 block of Autumn Gate. However, the offender left the house before the officers arrived, according to police.

Police received a second call at around 5:14 p.m., because Hinojo had returned to the residence. As officers arrived, Hinojo ran into the home. Officers then set up a perimeter around the house. During this time, Hinojo jumped into a neighboring backyard. He shot at two officers, who then fired back, striking Hinojo. He died from his injuries.

The Texas Rangers will investigate this case along with the department’s Shooting Review Team, and Crimes Against Persons Unit.
