HARRIS COUNTY, Texas - A man has been charged in connection to a shooting outside of a gas station in north Harris County on Monday, authorities say.
Patrick B. Allen, 32, is charged with three counts of aggravated assault and felon in possession of a weapon, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez says. He has been booked into the Harris County Jail.
Deputies were searching Monday afternoon for a suspect that they said should be considered armed and dangerous after a man was shot near FM 1960 and Sugar Pine Drive.
Sheriff Gonzalez said authorities were advised of a male pointing a pistol at random motorists. That's when, Gonzalez said, the male suspect opened fire on a man sitting in a truck outside of a gas station.
The wounded man, who was said to be 43 years old, was taken to the hospital and was last reported to be in critical but stable condition.
Authorities began a search for the suspect. The sheriff said Tuesday morning that Allen had been booked into the Harris County Jail.
