SAN ANTONIO -- A local man was arrested Thursday in connection with a fatal drive-by shooting that killed his ex-girlfriend's father.

Michael Solano, 23, is facing a murder charge for the death of 55-year-old Mario Martinez.

Police say Solano and another person fired several rounds from inside their vehicle into Martinez' home on January 3. Martinez was struck in the chest while he sat inside.

The victim was transported to University Hospital, where he died a short time later.

According to his arrest warrant, Solano is the ex-boyfriend of the victim's daughter.

Investigators said several violent attacks between the victim and female friends of Solano possibly led to the drive-by shooting.

Police are actively looking for the second suspect, Hilario Gabriel Urista. Urista is wanted on a felony warrant for murder. He is pictured here.
