A man was arrested after police said he opened fire on a car that his ex-girlfriend and another woman were in Thursday morning. The women escaped injury.
Police said the ex-girlfriend went to the man's home in the 2600 block of Guadalupe Street at 3 a.m. to pick up some belongings.
When she left, the man opened fire on the car, police said.
"The situation became a little bit heated. He opened fire on her, and she fled the location," Capt. Joery Smittick, of the San Antonio Police Department, said.
The women then went to a restaurant at Guadalupe and Old Castroville Road to call for help.
"With the location of the shots, it ... appeared that he meant to cause some injury to her," Smittick said.
San Antonio police launched one of its helicopters and closed down a stretch of Guadalupe Street from Zarzamora to Hamilton. Police then located a van the suspect was believed to be driving.
"We did recover the weapons in the van," Smittick said. "Not knowing that there might be other weapons, that's one of the reasons we closed down the area."
After getting a tip that two people ran into the home where the shooting happened, police used the loud speaker to contact the ex-boyfriend.
Both men came out of the home on their own, and police arrested the man suspected of opening fire on the women.
He is expected to be charged with aggravated assault, but as of Thursday afternoon, his name had not been released.
The other man was not expected to face charges.
