 SAN ANTONIO -- A local man is facing a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly shooting a man who reportedly rear-ended the shooter's car.

Investigators said 29-year-old Larry Flores was arrested Thursday night in connection to the shooting on May 6.

According to an arrest warrant, the two men were involved in a confrontation after they almost got into an accident on the road.

Flores told police, after that confrontation, the victim followed him in a vehicle before rear-ending Flores' car. Flores claims that's when the victim got out of the car and started walking toward the driver side of Flores' car.

Flores then pulled out a gun and shot the victim in the leg, according to investigators. The suspect told police he left the scene and disposed of the gun.

The victim, however, told police a different story. He admitted to police that he followed Flores, but did not mention hitting Flores' car.

The victim told police, as he walked to Flores' car, he heard Flores ask if he was carrying a weapon, just before being shot in the leg.

Later, the victim was able to pick Flores out of a photo lineup, according to court documents.

Flores was booked into the Bexar County jail on $75,000 bond.
