“The El Paso Times is reporting that one armed assailant shot two people at a convenience store on the Fort Bliss military base before they themselves were killed by law enforcement around 3pm.

CNN is reporting that one man, believed to be the shooter, is dead and two females are wounded. There were earlier reports that this was a murder / suicide, but it now appears that is not the case.

The shooting occurred at Cassidy’s Shopette, located at 1333 Cassidy Road.

It is not known at this time what the motive for the shooting was. The residents of the base were alerted to the shooting through an emergency-response e-mail system.
