SAN ANTONIO – Gabriel Sneed Pedraza, a 21-year-old man wanted in connection with a shooting on the far West Side, has been caught by San Antonio police. He was arrested Tuesday on a charge of aggravated assault.

An arrest warrant affidavit stated that a 20-year-old man identified him as the person who shot him multiple times on Nov. 24. Police found the victim on the sidewalk in the 8500 block of Adams Hill Drive.
