A man accused of shooting a partygoer at a party Sept. 22 at the Rancho Del Sol arena in DeKalb, Texas, has been indicted by a Bowie County grand jury.
Pedro Alarcon-Sepulveda, 21, allegedly fired a gun during a large gathering on the night of Sept. 22 and struck a woman in the chest. Alarcon-Sepulveda was identified by others at the event and a description of his vehicle, black with shiny wheels, was broadcast to area law enforcement, according to a probable cause affidavit.
“Information was also broadcast that the suspect was traveling toward New Boston using back roads,” the affidavit states.
A Texas game warden pulled over a car matching the description provided to police and the warden observed the driver throw objects out of the window. The objects were allegedly two handguns.
Alarcon-Sepulveda was indicted for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and theft of a firearm.
Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon is punishable by two to 20 years in prison. Theft of a firearm is punishable by two years to six months in a state jail.
Alarcon-Sepulveda’s bail is set at $250,000 on the aggravated assault charge and at $20,000 on the firearm charge. Court records indicate immigration officials have placed a hold on him as well.
The case is assigned to Bowie County 102nd District Judge Jeff Addison.
