Benito Refugio Casarez Jr.

Police say a woman was shot on Thursday night in downtown Seguin and a man arrested in connection to the shooting. 

The incident was reported about 9:30 p.m. in the 200 block of South Austin Street. 

“When officers arrived, they determined that a 40-year-old female victim had been transported by private vehicle to the Guadalupe Regional Medical Center suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot injury,” Seguin Police Chief Terry Nichols said in a news release. 

The woman was later taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center for treatment, Nichols said.

Detectives arrested 29-year-old Benito Refugio Casarez Jr., of Sugar Land, without incident in connection to the shooting, Nichols said.

Casarez was booked into Guadalupe County Jail on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon — family violence and remains jailed on a $250,000 bond.

The Seguin police continue to investigate the incident. Anyone with information is asked to contact the department at 830-379-2123.
