Authorities said the suspect who fatally shot one person and wounded three others at a shopping mall in El Paso, Texas, on Wednesday, was taken down within minutes by an off-duty police officer.
During a press conference Wednesday evening, El Paso Police Chief Peter Pacillas said an off-duty officer, who was not identified, was already at the Cielo Vista Mall when the shooting started.
Pacillas said police received calls of a suspect firing off several rounds, striking at least four people, at approximately 5:05 pm and the officer took a suspect into custody by 5:08 p.m.
The officer also took the suspect down without firing a shot, the police chief said.
When asked if the shooting was gang-related or facilitated between “two groups of people,” Pacillas said the answer is not yet known.
The Cielo Vista Mall remains an “active crime scene” and will continue to be locked down and secured until investigators are done processing, he said.
