A state corrections officer wanted in connection with a shooting in far West Bexar County late Wednesday night was captured in Fort Worth on Thursday, according to the Bexar County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators said Sidney Redd Denbina, 38, shot a man in his 30s multiple times following an argument.

He fled the county but was taken into custody without incident as he got off a train at the Amtrak station in Fort Worth.

Deputies responded to the shooting around 10 p.m. Wednesday in the 10300 block of Shady Meadows.

They said Denbina and his neighbor began to argue for an unknown reason, when Denbina pulled out a gun and fired several shots, hitting the victim several times, deputies said.

"We heard the gunshots go off -- a total of six shots we heard -- and we didn't know what was going on. We thought it was somewhere else," said Troy Leach, who lives on Shady Meadows. "I don't know what they could have been arguing about. The correction officer, he always seemed like he kept to himself."

Deputies initially believed Denbina was inside his home and attempted to make contact with him, but did not receive a response.

Deputies obtained a search warrant to go inside the home before 2 a.m., but were unable to find Denbina.

The victim -- whose name has not been released -- was transported to University hospital, but is expected to survive, officials said.

Denbina will be booked into the Tarrant County Jail and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
