SAN ANTONIO -- An Olmos Park police officer has been suspended and faces charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after authorities said he shot a man at least three times inside his east-side home Saturday.

Frankie Salazar, 29, was arrested inside a home near the intersection of Palmetto Street and the I-35 frontage road around 3:30 a.m.

A background check on Salazar indicates he lives at the home.

The victim, 33-year-old Jesus Guitron, was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center in critical condition.

A preliminary report released by SAPD indicates Guitron was stabilized after arriving at the hospital.

A spokeswoman for SAMMC did not return KENS 5's calls for an update on his condition Monday.

Olmos Park Police Chief Fritz Bohne said Salazar has been suspended while the department reviews the facts of the incident.

Salazar has been an officer with Olmos Park since January.

Constable Ruben Tejeda confirmed Monday that Salazar was a reserve deputy constable for precinct 1 from August 2010 to January 2013.

The police report indicates Guitron and Officer Salazar got into a physical altercation after a woman inside the home was uncomfortable with the men's plan of "switching partners sexually."

According to the report, another woman handed Salazar a .45 caliber handgun.

Police said he then shot Guitron in the chest, hand and possibly his pinkie finger.

Police found Guitron lying in the street when they arrived on scene.
