Suspect in Thanksgiving shooting has been arrested

Paris Shaw, 24, was wanted for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in connection to the shooting of a 22-year-old woman on the far west side.

BEXAR COUNTY, Texas — A man wanted for shooting a woman in the head on Thanksgiving has been arrested. The Bexar County Sheriff's Office put out an alert over the weekend in the search for 24-year old Paris Shaw.

Officials say Shaw shot a 22-year-old woman just before midnight on Thanksgiving in west Bexar County.

The San Antonio Police Department had reportedly found Shaw in the 6000 block of De Zavala Road on Sunday. He was looking inside vehicles, police said.

Authorities said Shaw tried to run, but police were able to detain him.

Shaw is now behind bars and his bond set at $200,000 dollars.

The shooting happened around 11:50 p.m. in the 10600 block of Barbwire Pass near Dueling Oak. 

When deputies arrived at the home, they found the front door open and could hear someone inside having difficulty breathing. 

Deputies went inside and found the 22-year-old victim with a gunshot wound to her head. She has since been identified as Joanna Baker.

She was taken to University Hospital in critical condition. She later passed away.

Investigators discovered information that connected Paris Shaw as the shooter and filed a warrant for his arrest.
