MGN Online

A verbal dispute between two men early Saturday morning led to one man being shot and the other arrested, according to court documents.

The arrest warrant states that Austin Police responded to the intersection of E 6th Street and San Jacinto Blvd at 2:11 a.m. and found a man shot.

Officers monitoring APD’s HALO cameras, static cameras mounted along the entertainment district, guided officers on the street to the victim and suspect.

The footage showed two men engaged in an argument with a crowd gathering around them. One man went into a fighting stance when the suspect reached into his waistband and pulled out a gun and fired 5 times, the warrant says.

A Glock handgun fell to the ground when officers tackled the suspect.

The suspect, identified as Dominic Anthony Lopez, 22, was arrested and admitted to getting into the verbal altercation with the victim but would not admit to being the shooter.

Paperwork shows that Lopez is a convicted felon with an outstanding parole warrant, listing him as armed and dangerous and a documented gang member.

Lopez is being held in the Travis County Jail and charged with Aggravated Assault With A Deadly Weapon, Unlawful Possession Firearm By Felon, Deadly Conduct Discharge Firearm At Individuals and Parole Violations. Bond is set at $175,000.
