SAN ANTONIOEditor’s note: Preliminary information provided by SAPD indicated the man who was shot was in critical condition. We have since received updated information.

One man is in custody and another man is injured after an argument turned to a shooting at a gas station near downtown overnight, according to San Antonio police.

The incident happened around 2:49 a.m., Sunday in the 800 block of San Pedro.

When police arrived, they found a man, 52, had been shot in the arm. He told officers he had an argument with another man, 25, who refused to leave the location.

The situation escalated when the 25-year-old man went to his truck and grabbed a handgun. He then pointed it at the other man and fired one time, striking him, according to SAPD.

Police said the armed man then got back into his vehicle and left the area.

The 52-year-old man’s injuries were deemed non-life threatening but he was taken by EMS to an area hospital for treatment.

As the investigation continued, officers were able to track down the shooter’s vehicle that was parked and abandoned at a nearby apartment complex.

Police said they later saw the 25-year-old man walking in the 300 block of Maverick and arrested him without incident.

The man is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
