Charges have been filed against a robbery suspect wounded by a male at 9988 Windmill Lakes Boulevard about 9 p.m. on Wednesday (Nov. 14).
The suspect, Angel Alejandro Lopez Arriaga (H/m, 18), is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in the 182nd State District Court. A booking photo of Lopez Arriaga, who is hospitalized, is not available at this time.
The male shooter (robbery victim), 27, was not injured.
HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division Officers C. Grahmann and R. Naughton reported:
The male victim drove to a parking space in the apartment complex at the above address and was getting ready to get out of his car when another vehicle stopped in front of his, blocking him. The driver of the vehicle then pulled around behind the victim and stopped again. At that time, the suspect (Lopez Arriaga) got out of his vehicle and was armed with a gun. The victim, who has a license to carry a handgun, pulled his weapon in fear for his life, thinking Lopez Arriaga was going to rob him. The victim discharged his weapon as Lopez Arriaga was pointing his weapon at him. Lopez Arriaga sustained a gunshot wound to his left leg and was transported to an area hospital in stable condition.
