TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) - UPDATE: Police have arrested a Temple man who is a suspect in the Wednesday morning shooting in Temple that sent a woman to the hospital in critical condition.

Simon Blanco, 38, was arrested by McGregor Police Officer Jeremy Bost about 11:40 p.m. Wednesday night, as he answered a call on the south side of McGregor. A call came in about a man walking in the middle of the road in the area.

When officer Bost arrived, he noticed that the man matched the description of a man sought by Temple police in connection with a shooting. Blanco was taken into custody without incident.

He is currently being held in the McLennan County Jail on charges of criminal trespass and possession of a controlled substance for items he was found to be in possession of when he was arrested Wednesday.

Temple police say he is a suspect in the continuing investigation of the Wednesday morning shooting, and the Bell County District Attorney's Office is reviewing the case. Blanco has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in connection with the shooting.



Police are investigating an early morning shooting in Temple that left a woman in critical condition at an area hospital.

Officers responded to the shooting at 3:40 a.m. at a home in the 600 block of S. 4th St. They found a woman inside the home with a gunshot wound. She was taken to Scott & White, where she is in critical condition.

Police say the victim and shooting suspect knew each other.
