Two people have been arrested in connection with the shooting that involved seven Fort Hood soldiers in New Braunfels.

24-year old Jesus Ricardo Gallegos and 26-year old Sarah Ann Garzes of San Antonio were each charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

No charges are expected for the seven soldiers. 

It happened at 1:30 a.m. on the 100 block of Liebscher Drive at Prince Solms Park.

Police said that the soldiers witnessed a disturbance between a man and his girlfriend and intervened.

After deescalating the situation, the soldiers began to return to their vehicles and that’s when, police said, the woman ran to her boyfriend’s vehicle, grabbed a handgun, and handed it to the boyfriend who began shooting the weapon at the soldiers.

The soldiers scattered and one was able to retrieve his handgun from his vehicle, providing cover fire so the other soldiers could take cover.

The suspect shot a total of 19 rounds, striking two vehicles. The soldier firing his weapon shot a total of 7 rounds and hit the suspect in the elbow.

The suspect, girlfriend, and soldiers all fled the scene.

The suspect’s vehicle which was located at a gas station in the 3200 block of Loop 337.
