Austin-Travis County EMS officials said it happened at 1901 Rio Grande Street. According to an arrest affidavit, Jesus Delarca-Reyes assaulted the foreman at the construction site.
The affidavit says Delarca-Reyes was a former employee at the construction site and was fired about two weeks ago.
On Wednesday, Delarca-Reyes returned to the site and demanded money. The foreman told him he had been paid in full and took out his cell phone to take photos of Delarca-Reyes trespassing on the property. Delarca-Reyes hit the cell phone out of the foreman’s hand, and when the foreman pushed him, Delarca-Reyes pulled out a gun, shooting the foreman’s leg.
