ALTON, Texas (KVEO)—A Mission man has been charged with criminal attempt murder after shooting another man over the weekend.
Bobby Lorton Casados, 42, was arrested Sunday morning after deputies responded to a call for service in Saint Francis street in rural Alton.
Deputies found a 38 year-old man with a gunshot wound around the torso.
The victim’s brother told deputies he heard an argument on the front porch of their home.
He said he heard the victim arguing with a man, later identified as Casados, who appeared to be intoxicated.
Casados was asking the victim for help with his truck, which had no gas and a flat tire. During their conversation, Casados shot the man, according to the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s office.
