UPDATE (3:10 p.m. Feb. 10): San Angelo Police have provided an update on a shooting that happened at a north San Angelo apartment complex Tuesday afternoon.
The SAPD said it is now investigating the case from the Cheyenne Crossing Apartments, 17 W. 31st St., as a homicide.
Officers were dispatched to the location just after 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, for the report of a shooting victim. On their way, officers were told a woman had run from the scene on West 31st towards Grape Creek Road.
Responding officers found the victim lying in the complex parking lot, with an apparent gunshot wound to the torso.
He was taken to Shannon Medical Center by ambulance but later died from his injuries. The victim was identified as Roy Perez Sr. of San Angelo.
The alleged suspect was found by officers at West 32nd Street and Grape Creek Road and arrested. The woman, a 23-year-old San Angelo resident, was taken to the department’s Criminal Investigations Division Annex Office for a formal interview.
