EL PASO, Texas -- Two people were arrested, one on a murder charge, following a deadly weekend shooting at an apartment complex in northeast El Paso, police said Monday.

The fatal shooting happened around 5 a.m. Sunday along the 5000 block of Fairbanks at the Pine Village Apartments.

Police identified the victim as 32–year-old Anthony Martin and said he was found dead of a gunshot wound at the scene by officers who responded to a call about shots fired.

Officials announced the suspected shooter, 31–year old Grant Rutledge, was arrested Monday morning in the 3500 block of Keltner on a warrant charging him with murder. No motive was revealed for the attack and investigators didn't indicate what led up to the shooting.

Rutledge was booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility, where authorities said he was being held Monday afternoon under a $1,000,000 bond.

Police said another person seen fleeing the shooting scene Sunday was taken into custody after a brief chase on charges of evading and drug possession; no identity was given.

    1. goingforward 123, did you od on stupid juice? you’re a freakin moron, you blame everyone and everything except the POS that that pulled the trigger, typical liberal bullshit

  1. I would like to focus on the white American shooters. Lol. The Tennessee bomber. The white school schooters! The white cop killers. Lol. The white everything. The losers of America!

    1. When you are done maybe we could talk about ms13, or maybe we should ask why 95 percent of the mug shots posted by the sheriffs department are hispanic. No race is perfect, its individuals like you that bring them down

  2. We don’t want them around us! Hopefully fort bliss will reduce the white anomaly morons brought into town. Keep an eye on them! . Don’t invite them into your home.

  3. Im curious why my posts are deleted and this parasite that has many names is allowed to carry on his tirade about “white people” I admit to using less than cordial language at times but this “person” is allowed to write nasty and vile comments, he now calls himself fero2madmikegeedub, so tell me KVIA is it because you are a democratic station or he works for you, so what is it Kevin Lovell are you just a station that let people express their thoughts or are you just a shill for socialism?
