Shooting in El Paso Mall leaves 1 Dead and 3 Injured


Four people were shot, one fatally, in an El Paso mall Wednesday night.

According to El Paso Police Chief Peter Pacillas, gunfire erupted near the food court in the Cielo Vista mall sending dozens of people running for their life.

Four people were shot, three of which were transported to the hospital. One male victim died at the scene.

Two of the victims, both males, were taken to the University Medical Center of El Paso in critical condition. The third injured victim, also male, was taken to a different hospital and his condition is unknown.

An off-duty police officer working security inside the mall was able to apprehend one of the suspects within minutes. A second suspect was arrested at a later time.

Multiple agencies worked through the night clearing out the mall and collecting evidence and investigative material.

The Wednesday shooting occurred next door to the Walmart where a 2019 mass shooting left 23 dead.
