  • Press Release #032515(13)-San Angelo Man Arrested in Connection to North San Angelo Shooting

    Wed, Mar 25, 2015 - 04:31 PM

    One arrest has been made in connection to a shooting incident that occurred yesterday in a north San Angelo neighborhood.  Jarrett Jackson (DOB 12-08-91) of San Angelo has been charged with Obstruction/Retaliation after confirming Jackson's involvement in the shooting.  Police are searching for additional suspects who are believed to be involved; however, no arrests have been made at this time.

     

    Police were dispatched to the 500 block of W. 16th just before 2:00 p.m. on March 24, 2015 after receiving multiple calls for shots fired in the area.  When officers arrived, they located evidence that a shooting occurred.  Several adult and child witnesses were located.  No one was injured during the incident.  Their names are not being released at this time.

     

    After a lengthy investigation, police learned Jackson went to a residence in the area with at least two other men to locate an acquaintance he had a history of conflict with when Jackson and the other men engaged the residents in a verbal altercation.  At some point during the altercation, one or more unknown persons from both groups began shooting at each other from the street.  After the shooting, Jackson and the men reportedly fled the area northbound on Hudson in a white passenger car.  

     

    Detectives with the Department's Criminal Investigations Division and Special Operations Section (SOS) along with CSI responded to investigate and collect evidence.  Jackson was located several hours after the shooting and brought in for questioning.  After the interview, Detectives charged Jackson with Obstruction/Retaliation because the unnamed acquaintance is a party to a previous criminal case against Jackson. 

     

    This is an ongoing investigation.  No further information will be released at this time.  Detective Michael Gaeta is the lead Investigator for this case.

  • Press Release #031915(12)-Aggravated Assault Family Violence with a Deadly Weapon

    Thu, Mar 19, 2015 - 03:38 PM

    On March 18, 2015 at approximately 11:14 am, Police responded to the unit block of Belaire Ave for a report of an unwanted subject with a weapon.  Upon arrival, Police observed Paul Ryan Garcia DOB 7-13-92 acting aggressive and yelling.  Garcia was taken into custody without incident.

     

    Upon further investigation it was learned the situation was a domestic issue.  A 22 year old Hispanic female, who is in a relationship with Garcia, had gone to pick up Garcia upon his release from the Tom Green County Jail.  After leaving the jail, Garcia became agitated, retrieved a gun from somewhere in the vehicle, pointed the gun at the victim, and threatened to kill her if she did not take him home.  It was reported Garcia fired the gun outside the vehicle in the area of the intersection of 6th Street and Chadbourne to emphasize his threat, but this cannot be confirmed by Police at this time.  Once they were at the house, the victim was able to get away from Garcia and call the Police.

     

    Detective Jake Russell responded to continue the investigation.  A gun was located in the vehicle and is believed to have been reported stolen in a burglary earlier this year.

     

    Garcia was transported to the Tom Green County Jail and charged with Aggravated Assault Family Violence with a Deadly Weapon.  Other charges may be forthcoming pending further investigation.
