San Marcos police arrested two San Antonio men after an overnight home invasion in which one person was shot and wounded.
Police arrested Michael Wilson, 23, and Justin Pickaree, 19, after a foot chase. The invasion occurred around 11:40 p.m. Tuesday at the University Heights Apartments at 1610 North Interstate-35.
Wilson and Pickaree each are charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and evading arrest. They are held at the Hays County Law Enforcement Center and were expected to be formally booked Wednesday morning. Each suspect is being held on a $55,000 bond.
San Marco Police Department (SMPD) Commander Terry Nichols said the two suspects, armed with handguns, entered the apartment and a fight ensued. One suspect shot a 23-year old man who lived in the apartment.
The victim was seriously injured and was transported to University Medical Center at Brackenridge in Austin, where he was reported to be in stable condition Wednesday morning.
Seven people were in the apartment at the time, including two residents and five visitors.
Both suspects fled on foot after the shooting. Police found them running through the apartment complex and arrested them after a short foot pursuit.
Police recovered two handguns, which had been thrown away when suspects fled from officers. Both handguns were reported stolen from the San Antonio area, Nichols said.
The SMPD is continuing its investigation.Email | Print
