HOUSTON, Texas — After shooting his mother’s boyfriend Monday, a Houston man opened fire at the ambulance crew who was trying to treat the wounded man, officials said.

The suspected gunman was arrested Tuesday, hours after earlier shootings, according to the Houston Chronicle.

A Houston Fire Department ambulance was dispatched to assist a man who had been shot in the leg by his girlfriend’s son after he broke up a dispute between two women in his front yard, police said.

Upon arrival, paramedics asked the suspected gunman to move his vehicle because the ambulance could not get by.

Once they began treating the gunshot victim inside of the ambulance, the suspect opened fire and hit the ambulance at least four times, according to MyFoxHouston.

The man who was shot was taken to the hospital by another ambulance, and is expected to survive. No paramedics were hurt.
