Houston police say they have arrested a man accused of shooting a security guard at a local apartment complex last week.

The Houston Police Department said Gerardo Rodriguez, 23, has been charged with aggravated assault in the shooting of 40-year-old Jedley Jean. Jean was taken to a hospital in stable condition, according to HPD.

Police said officers responded to Shadow Creek Apartments at 7500 Pinemont Dr. in the Kempwood area around 3:15 a.m. Aug. 5 to find that Jean had been shot. According to HPD, Jean was attempting to lock up the complex’s laundromat when he noticed Rodriguez and asked him to leave.

The two then allegedly got into a shouting match, police said, before Rodriguez allegedly fired at Jean multiple times and hit him in the torso.
