Corpus Christi Police Detectives made an arrest early this afternoon for the deadly shooting that occurred just before 1 AM in the 1100 block of 25th Street.  After interviewing witnesses, it was determined that a resident from an apartment complex located at 1114 25th Street confronted a 34-year-old man in the parking lot who was reportedly breaking into a car.  The car belonged to the resident’s neighbor.  The resident had himself been a vicitm of an auto burglary several days ago. The resident threatened the man with a gun.  The burglar took off running toward the 1100 block of 25th Street and the resident shot him.  The victim was shot one time in the back, and later died at Spohn Memorial Hospital.  After the shooting, the resident went inside his apartment and did not contact officers who responded to the call.  Several hours later, detectives did contact the resident and arrested him.  A revolver, believed to be the weapon used, was recovered.     Jesus Angel Gonzales (02/16/1993) was arrested for murder, and he was additionally charged with possession of a controlled substance when narcotics were found in a pair of pants that detectives believe he was wearing at the time of the shooting.
