The Real Iron 7

As some of you probably already know, we had an incident last night on Fort Bliss involving a shooting. We are working through this as quickly, and as thoroughly as possible. We will provide updates as the situation develops.

Shortly after midnight today, Fort Bliss Department of Emergency Services Military Police responded to a bystander report of a disturbance on base.

Upon arrival, the subject presented an armed direct threat to law
enforcement by allegedly pointing a handgun at Military Police officers and was shot.

The Subject is a Soldier assigned to the 1st Armored Division and is
currently receiving medical care at an El Paso hospital. The unit has been in contact with the subject's family.

No other personnel were injured.

Special Agents with the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command are investigating the incident and processing the scene and have recovered the subject's handgun.

We regret to report the tragic event that occurred on Fort Bliss, Texas today. While we may not understand yet why the event occurred, we have confidence in our law enforcement to determine the facts of how this morning's event unfolded. The safety of our Fort Bliss community remains our top priority.

Effective immediately by order of the 1st Armored Division and Fort Bliss, Texas Commanding General, all Soldiers will wear masks while in uniform, both inside and outside buildings other than inside a Soldier's personal domicile or personal barracks room, regardless of the ability to socially distance themselves from others. This applies on and off-post. For Soldiers when in civilian attire, you are asked to wear a mask under those same conditions.

Soldiers will also wear the mask while in the Army's physical fitness uniform, unless you are conducting physical fitness training. Once Soldiers are done conducting PT, they will be required to immediately put the mask on and wear it.

To our Fort Bliss family members and community, while we cannot formally direct you to do so the same, we ask everyone to support and maintain this same level of protection to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. This requirement will remain in place until further notice.
