     A suspect has been arrested in relation to the Tuesday shooting at the Tuscany apartment complex that saw a 20-year-old female victim transported to Shannon Medical Center.

     Thirty-two-year-old Ronald Montana II was arrested Tuesday evening for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and resisting arrest, a San Angelo Police Department news release said.

     Tuscany resident Alfonso Perez, 26, said he heard screaming and went outside to find a man holding a pistol.

     "I went to go look and there between my car and another car there was a woman shot directly in her chest." Perez said. "She was still breathing and he stood around yelling for a while."

     "Just before noon we received a call that came in by 911 regarding  a shooting incident located at the Tuscany apartments at 1815 S. Fillmore," SAPD Public Information Officer Tracy Gonzalez said in an earlier statement. "Right now, all that we know is the victim of the shooting was transported to Shannon Medical Center for treatment of unknown injuries."

     San Angelo police confirmed that none of the individuals involved in the incident were ASU students.

     The Criminal Investigations Division is looking for 21-year-old Juan Carlos Sanchez.

      "Sanchez is needed for questioning," the news release said.

     ASU police sent out alerts about the incident, warning people to stay away from the scene. ASU police were present at the scene to aid local law enforcement.

     "We were notified by city police that they were responding to a shooting, and it is not uncommon for us to also respond to incidents close to the campus," ASU Police Chief James Adams said. "We simply assisted them by helping set up a perimeter around the crime scene area and standing by."

     San Angelo police officers were on the scene conducting their investigation and no further official statement has been given containing any details of that investigation.
The investigation is still ongoing.
     If anyone has any information regarding the incident please contact SAPD.  If you would like to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at 658-HELP.
