July 15, 2014 morning story: One person is dead after a shooting in Northeast El Paso early Tuesday morning.

The incident happened around 2 a.m. at the intersection of Deer and Pheasant. The car was in the middle of the intersection with the back window shattered.

The victim was reportedly shot inside the car.

Investigators have not said if a suspect is in custody, but they did question a man in the area at the time of the shooting.

James Milam said his son, 19 years old, called him to tell him he was questioned by police just before 3 a.m. Milam did not give his son's name.

It is unclear if the 19-year-old knew the man that was shot or if he was a bystander when the shooting happened.

Milam said his son told him he was in his own car,  the white vehicle pictured above.

"He told me 'the cops have me right here, there's a murder scene in front of my car,'" said Milam.

"I grew up in the northeast with no problems, it just seems like it's getting worse," said Milam about the violence in the area.

Another resident who lives nearby said he was not surprised, "this isn't the best neighborhood, I don't think this was a random shooting."

The man killed was not immediately identified.

EPPD has not released additional information.
