A man has been arrested after he allegedly shot and killed a woman outside of a bar.
Recently, Aaron Jacob Gutierrez, 24, was taken into custody for the murder of 35-year-old Maria Gonzales, according to FOX 29.
The shooting happened around 1 a.m. on Dec. 16 outside of The East Bar in San Antonio, Texas, FOX 29 reported.
When police arrived, they found Gonzales lying in the middle of the street, dead from a gunshot wound to the head, according to FOX 29.
According to police, on the night of the shooting, Gonzales and some of her friends had just left the bar and were blocking traffic, FOX 29 reported.
Witnesses told police that a white, 4-door sedan was stopped in the street, blocked by the victim and her friends, and the driver honked several times, according to FOX 29.
Video surveillance confirmed that after the sedan drove away, shots were fired from the vehicle, and one of the bullets hit and killed Gonzales, FOX 29 reported.
