SAN ANTONIO - The San Antonio Police Department arrested a 22-year-old man Tuesday for allegedly shooting at his pregnant ex-wife when she was on her way to pick up her boyfriend.

According to an arrest affidavit, Lorenzo Arturo Leos is accused of making threats on Facebook, in text messages and by phone to kill his ex-wife and her unborn child.

Although Leos and the woman ended their marriage in 2017 and have been involved in new relationships since then, Leos was upset because his ex-wife was pregnant by her current boyfriend, according to the affidavit.

On Feb. 21, the woman drove to her friend’s home to pick her up and to get paperwork to help her new boyfriend get released from jail, according to the affidavit.
