Fabian Alvarado

Seguin police arrested a man in connection to a shooting at a house in the city about a week earlier, the Seguin Police Department’s spokesperson said.

Seguin Police Spokesperson Officer Tanya Brown said 20-year-old Fabian Alvarado was arrested on Sunday.

According to online records, Alvarado was booked into Guadalupe County Jail on a single charge of aggravated assault with a weapon. He was being held on $100,000 bond.

Alvarado was arrested and jailed in connection to the June 2 shooting of 22-year-old Saturnino Gutierrez, who was injured when someone fired shots into a house in the 600 block of San Antonio Avenue, Brown said.

Officers with a warrant in hand nabbed Alvarado on Sunday in the city, she said.

“Officers with the Seguin Police Department executed an arrest warrant at Starcke Park on 26-year-old Fabian Alvarado in connection with last week’s shooting that occurred on June 2,” Brown said.

Few details were available for release Tuesday and police provided minimal details at the time of the shooting.

Gutierrez was inside a house when someone fired shots into the residence, Brown said the day after the shooting. After being hit by gunfire, Gutierrez went in a private vehicle to the Guadalupe Regional Medical Center.

GRMC staff called police and officers began an investigation.

Brown said Tuesday that Gutierrez is expected to recover from being shot.
