On Tuesday, the Amarillo Police Department determined that Weslen Patterson was possibly in Hondo, Texas. APD Detectives relayed information to members of the Medina County Sheriffs Office who were able to arrest Patterson.

Patterson is being held in the Medina County Jail for his two warrants out of Randall County.

Early Sunday morning, Amarillo police officers were called to a shooting at a residence in the 3400 block of Teckla Boulevard.

A 31 year old female and a 40 year old male were inside of the residence. Investigators say Patterson opened a window from outside of the residence and shot the male in the upper body. He then entered the residence and began choking the female.

The male victim left out of the front of the residence and Patterson followed him outside and shot him again in the upper body. Patterson then left the scene before officers arrived.

Patterson and the female victim had previously been in a dating relationship.

The male victim was transported to an area hospital with what is believed to be life threatening injuries. The female suffered minor injuries and did not require medical attention.

Detectives with the APD Domestic Violence Unit obtained warrants for  Burglary of a Habitation and Aggravated Assault With a Deadly Weapon, for Patterson, through Randall County.
