A man was arrested after he was accused of shooting a woman who was trying to leave a northwest San Antonio home.
Police said around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, the victim, 36-year-old Guadalupe Alvarez, and 30-year-old Jarrod Davis had a disagreement at a home in the 9600 block of Maidenstone Drive.
"The victim and the suspect had been involved in an argument. The suspect allegedly grabbed a rifle, shot the victim in the ankle," said San Antonio police Officer Roger Zuniga.
Alvarez managed to get to a neighbor's house to call police, but had to leave her 4-year-old son behind in the house with Davis.
Officers arrived and surrounded the home.
"When officers respond to a shooting situation, they want to use caution. It wasn't an active shooting situation where they needed to rush in, so they took their time. Nothing else, no other threats perceived at the time, so the officers evaluated the situation, tried to contact the suspect," Zuniga said.
Police called Davis, who he came out on his own. He was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, police said.
Alvarez was taken to University Hospital and was expected to recover from the gunshot wound. Her son was not harmed.
Davis' twin brother, Warren Davis, was also inside the home at the time of the shooting. He was arrested on outstanding warrants.
