Hernandez gave different versions of the shooting to detectives and subsequently declined prosecution in the case, police said in a news release.

He was treated for his injury and was released from the hospital.

However, police discovered that Hernandez had a criminal warrant from New Mexico and he was arrested and booked into the El Paso County Jail, authorities said. Jail records show he still was being held late Friday afternoon.

The investigation into the shooting continues.
