Later arrested and charged with burglary of a habitation and assault with a deadly weapon was William Rogers, 43, of Corpus Christi.
The suspect was described at the scene as being six feet tall and weighing about 275 pounds.
He was wearing a blue work shirt with “Baker Hughes” on one side and “Will” on the other, according to the incident report.
A neighbor of the victim called 911 and told the dispatcher that the victim had a gunshot wound to the leg.
Aransas and San Patricio counties were advised that the suspect was armed and seen driving a white Ford pickup, heading east on Farm-to-Market Road 136 out of Woodsboro.
At first, HALO-Flight was called, but later the flight was canceled because the victim was up and walking around.
The victim later went to Refugio Memorial Hospital, according to the incident report.
San Patricio County law enforcement spotted the vehicle and matched the description of the suspect. William Rogers was detained.
Deputy Martin Deleon met the San Patricio deputy to pick up the suspect at U.S. Highway 35 and Loop 202 near Gregory.
The gun used in the shooting was a .380 Walther.
Milton’s towed the pickup.
The suspect was taken to the Refugio County Jail.
