Five arrested Sunday night
Four men and one juvenile were arrested Sunday night after an incident that started on Brazos Street led to a fugitive carrying a stolen gun running through the backyards of North Getty Street homes.
Esteban Xavier Flores, 19, of Uvalde was apprehended after a pursuing Uvalde Police Department officer called ahead to three men gathered in a yard to stop Flores, who had discarded a bag containing the weapon and drugs during the pursuit.
The trio was able to halt Flores, and the officer took custody of him at 513 N. High St.
The incident began a little after 8 p.m. when a woman called UPD and stated her husband and son were being threatened with a firearm at her residence.
When officers arrived at 516 E. Brazos St. at approximately 8:14 p.m., suspects had already fled, but the complainant identified one suspect. A neighbor’s camera also caught footage of a silver Buick fleeing the scene, according to UPD public information officer Jessica Zamora.
The vehicle fled south on Milam Street toward Getty Street. An officer intercepted the Buick and performed a traffic stop at the intersection of Anglin and North Getty streets.
