A 32-year-old San Angelo man was air-lifted to a San Antonio hospital early this morning after he was shot in the leg by an acquaintance at a residence in the 3200 block of North Street.
Officers were dispatched to the residence around 2:20 a.m. for the report of a shooting. Upon arrival, they located the victim who was sitting in the doorway, bleeding from his leg. Officers applied a tourniquet until medics arrived and assumed first aid measures. The victim was transported to Shannon Medical Center and later flown to San Antonio. His current condition and extent of injuries is unknown.
Officers located the suspect, identified as Joshua Henry, in a bedroom. Detectives with the Department’s Criminal Investigations Division responded to the scene along with Crime Scene Investigations. The weapon used was also located at the residence.
Subsequent to the field investigation it was learned the victim, who had been previously staying with Henry, came to the residence to retrieve some of his belongings. Henry told the victim to leave seconds before he shot the victim in the leg.
Henry was charged with Aggravated Assault with Deadly Weapon and transported to the Tom Green County Jail.
This is an ongoing investigation.
