Woman injured, man arrested after overnight dispute results in shooting, authorities say

When officers arrived, they found the 50-year-old victim on the porch, with at least three gunshot wounds in the abdomen.

SAN ANTONIO — A woman is expected to survive after she was hurt in a shooting on the city's west side, the San Antonio Police Department said.

The incident happened around 11 p.m. Friday along the 3900 block of Eldridge Avenue.

When officers arrived, they found the 50-year-old victim on the porch of the home with at least three gunshot wounds in the abdomen. A 49-year-old man, Encarnacion Botello, was detained after he and the victim gave conflicting reports on what happened. 

Later, after he and another witness were questioned by investigators, Encarnacion was officially charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Authorities believe he and the victim, an "off-and-on" couple, were arguing before the dispute turned violent.
