Campground Shooting Suspect Arrested in Houston
Harris County sheriff’s deputies arrested a man boarding a plane at Hobby Airport in Houston today (April 1) under accusations he shot five people the night before. One of those victims later died, according to KRIV-TV, Houston.
Aransas Pass police say the shooting happened late Wednesday night at an RV park there.
“Aransas Pass police found a 35-year-old Port Aransas woman dead when they arrived at Fin & Feather Marina & RV Park off State Highway 361,” said Aaron Jones, Aransas Pass Police Department spokesman.
Her identity wasn’t released pending notification of family.
A 35-year-old man was taken by HALO-Flight to Christus Spohn Hospital Memorial in critical condition, a flight paramedic said.
Three other adults, one woman and two men, were taken by ambulance to hospitals in stable condition.
The shooting followed an argument between the shooter and one of the victims, Jones said. Police believe the shooter was an acquaintance of the woman killed.
“The man left after the altercation, then returned with a gun,” said Jones, who didn’t know the type of gun used.
The shooter fled in a black SUV, which was later found in Port Aransas and seized by Aransas Pass police, according to authorities.
A Nueces County magistrate issued a warrant on suspicion of murder for Jose Francisco Guillen, 33, he said. Guillen was in Harris County Sheriff’s deputies custody today.
Aransas Pass police were told that U.S. Marshals caught Guillen as he was trying to board a flight from Hobby Airport to California at 9:30 a.m.
Guillen is being held by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office on a $100,000 bond.
