ORIGINAL: EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — Two people were injured — one seriously — in a domestic dispute that turned into an officer-involved shooting in East El Paso on Monday, Sept. 11.
About 5 p.m., police were called out to the 2600 block of Schooner Drive near Pebble Hills Drive for what was initially a “subject with a weapon” call.
When they arrived, they found a domestic dispute was happening, said Detective Judy Oviedo, a spokesperson for El Paso Police.
An officer “was forced” to fire his weapon, and shot the suspect, Oviedo said. The suspect was only identified as a 49-year-old man. His injuries were described as serious.
A 52-year-old woman was also transported to a hospital with undetermined injuries. It was unclear if she was also shot.
No other people were in the house when the incident happened and the general public is not at risk, Oviedo said.
No officers were injured in the incident, Oviedo said.
