The indictment goes on to say in count two, Alvarez fired a gun at Alejandro.

The police report says officers were called to the scene just after 1 p.m. in the 1100 block of 53rd Street. They were told a person was shot and the suspect was still on the scene. The report says the victim was seriously injured and was taken to the hospital where he was sent to the operating room.

A K9 officer and the SWAT team were on the scene and forced their way into the home where Alvarez was barricaded. 

Witnesses on the scene told police Alvarez and Alejandro were in the front yard fighting. When they were finished, the witness told police Alejandro continued to escalate the situation. The witness said Alvarez shot Alejandro in self-defense.

Alvarez was released from jail on a $30,000 bond.
