Chaos broke out in Flour Bluff this morning.

Just after 9:30 a.m., several residents called 911 reporting shots were fired at the 700 block of McDonald Street.

When officers arrived, witnesses told them a man with a gun was arguing with a couple on the 700 block of McDonald Street.

 

According to Officer Daniel Garcia with the Corpus Christi Police Department, the 35-year-old man tried to run over a woman but he hit a trash can and a tree instead. Then, he got out of the car and chased her boyfriend through his yard.

The victim grabbed a stick and hit the gunman. That’s when the man shot him, with a bullet grazing his head.

 

The gunman then got back in his car, firing his gun as he drove off.

Officers say the gunman lives in Flour Bluff.  He faces charges on two counts of aggravated assault.
