El Paso, Texas – Police are investigating an officer’s firing after the suspect in a shooting at a paintball range was shot in the back, according to the El Paso Times.
The shooting occurred Sunday at the Fort Knox Paintball Range, located at the edge of town.
Fort Knox police Chief Mike Pascual said officers responded to the scene to assist a local fire department with a call about a person who was being attacked.
The suspect was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the head, police said.
Pascual, however, said that a video from the scene shows a police officer pointing his weapon at a suspect who was in the air and the suspect’s face.
He added that an investigation is underway to determine if the officer acted appropriately.
Pistols have been banned at the facility, according the Times.
El Paso police have not released any information about the suspect or the incident, but Pascul said the suspect had multiple weapons, including a shotgun.
