FBI Arrests Man In Weekend Shooting On Fort Bliss Housing

FBI agents arrested Christopher Stafford Peaden, 20, of El Paso in connection with a drive-by shooting at a Fort Bliss housing area on March 27.

Peaden was recently discharged from the U.S. Army.

Peaden was arrested by FBI agents on one count of 18 United States Code 7(3) and one count of 18 United States Code 13(a). These codes allow for the special jurisdiction of the FBI to arrest civilians on federal installations as well as to arrest them for assimilated crimes that are part of the Texas Penal Code. In this case, Peaden was arrested in relation to Texas Penal Code 22.05, deadly conduct.

Peaden’s initial court appearance will be this afternoon before U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael McDonald.

At about 1:40 pm on March 27, Peaden drove by a residence in the 3500 block of Salgado, Ft. Bliss and allegedly fired multiple rounds in the direction of the residence striking two vehicles. No one was injured. The investigation continues.
