UPDATE: Police confirmed a 25-year-old woman suffered a leg wound and a 20-year-old woman was grazed by a bullet early Saturday as multiple gunshots rang out at the La Estancia Apartment complex in east El Paso following a burglary.

The 25-year-old victim was treated at a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries, while the 20-year-old didn't require a trip to the hospital.

Investigators said a 20-year-old man was identified as the shooter, with detectives determining that "the shooting was related to a burglary where the suspect's apartment was burglarized by individuals in the apartment where the female victims were."

Police said neither the shooting victims nor the burglary victim wanted to press charges; no names were released but authorities said they were continuing their investigation into the incident.
