San Angelo Man Arrested on Firearms, Narcotics Charges after Shots Fired Investigation in North San

A 25-year-old San Angelo man was arrested Saturday night on various charges stemming from a ‘Shots Fired’ investigation in North San Angelo. 

Just before 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 5, 2019, San Angelo Police were dispatched to the area of West 22nd and North Farr after several callers reported shots fired from a dark-colored SUV.  Responding officers located several spent shell casings in the street.  The suspect vehicle was no longer on scene and no one was injured.  

Soon after, San Angelo Public Safety Communications received a call for an armed man that was waving a gun in the air at MLK Pak, 2121 Martin Luther King Blvd.  Upon arrival, a few park-goers alerted the officers to the armed man's location. 

When officers attempted to confront the suspect, the suspect ducked behind a nearby vehicle and appeared to discard something.  The suspect, later identified as Rhyheme Talton, was detained and frisked for safety.  Talton had a Glock ammunition magazine in his pocket and officers located an unattended Glock firearm on the sidewalk during an immediate search of the area.  Officers also located a black SUV that is associated with Talton at the park.  The SUV was running and unoccupied.  

Talton, who was exhibiting signs of intoxication, was placed under arrest for public intoxication, Unlawful Possession of Firearm by Felon, and Possession of Controlled Substance Penalty Group 3 after officers located a bag of Xanax in his sock.  

Talton was transported to the Tom Green County Jail without incident.  Bond was set at $11,442.00.
