CORYELL COUNTY -

Two Copperas Cove roommates have been arrested and charged for aggravated assault for an altercation Friday morning. Alexis Maldonado-Morales and Alfonso Manuel Montalvo-Madera are both accused of threatening each other with a stolen pistol.

Police were called to an apartment Friday at 8:30 a.m. in the 600 block of Sunset Lane for a domestic disturbance call where shots were fired. When police arrived they met with Maldonado and Montalvo. Police initially asked Maldonado where the gun was, but the suspect denied knowing it's location.

Maldonado told police that he was awakened by Montalvo holding a pistol under his chin, and that he feared for his life. Montalvo is accused of threatening him, and they began to fight. Maldonado knocked the gun away from Montalvo and was able to recover the weapon.

Montalvo ran out of the apartment, and Maldonado fired two shots at him through the living room window. Maldonado said he was assaulted by Montalvo, and he was protecting himself from an assault.

Maldonado later confessed that he shot the pistol at Montalvo. The pistol used was found in Maldonado's bedroom, and police later learned that the weapon was reported stolen in Nolanville.

Maldonado said he purchased the gun off the streets. Police later learned that Maldonado was convicted of a felony in 2010.

When the two suspects were transported to the police station, Maldonado was escorted in by wheelchair to the booking area. He jumped out of the chair and punched Montalvo on the left side of the face, as he waited to be processed. Montalvo suffered a swollen and bruised left temple and eye.

Maldonado and Montalvo were both charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and theft of a firearm for the incident. Police further charged Maldonado with assault with bodily injury to a family member and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.
