EPCC Shooting Suspect Arrested While Giving Interview

Tejano Tribune

A shooting was reported at El Paso Community College’s Northwest branch Thursday. EPCC police made an arrest — while the prime suspect was being interviewed about the shooting by reporters from EPCC’s Tejano Tribune!

The Tejano Tribune released the video today. The suspect, who identifies himself as “Joe”, begins to give an interview but is noticeably uncomfortable while doing so — especially as an EPCC police cruiser passes by.

“Joe” tells reporters he’s back on campus to buy a book. As the interview starts in earnest, the suspect is asked about his thoughts on the shooting and says, “It’s bad. It’s bad, I don’t know.”

At this time, while answering questions, a number EPCC police officers show up, call the suspect over and arrest him on the spot while the Tejano Tribune’s camera rolls.

EPCC police reported the incident earlier in the day, saying an altercation between students ended when one student shot at another, missed, and left the scene. No one was injured. The arrest happened some four hours later when the suspect returned to campus.

Chibuike Joseph Uke, Jr., was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, which turned out to be a BB gun, according to police. The BB gun resembled a pistol and was powerful enough to shoot out the window of a pickup truck, according to the El Paso Times.

Where do you begin your search for a suspect? EPCC truly is the best place to start!

Great job by EPCC’s police, and a wonderful scoop for the Tejano Tribune!
