Suspect in Custody Following Standoff in Pearsall

A lover's triangle led to one man being shot in Pearsall, which is on I-35 southwest of San Antonio, and a second man in custody, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

Police say a man fired a gun through the window of his ex wife's home, then he drove back to his own home, where police found him.

The suspect barricaded himself inside the home for several hours, until a DPS tactical team entered and managed to take him into custody.

The ex wife was not hurt. The new boyfriend suffered non life threatening wounds.

Police say the couple had been having trouble with the suspect for some time, and had obtained a protective order against him.
