Domestic Argument Turns Violent
Wife Fires Shots While Husband Holds Child

LSFTF LogoSan Antonio, TX Lisa Guerra-Romo, 34, was arrested this afternoon by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force in San Antonio without incident. Arrest warrants were sought by the San Antonio Police Department, Family Violence Unit, where it is alleged that Guerra-Romo committed aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and endangerment to a child.

Earlier this week, the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force was contacted by the San Antonio Police Department for assistance in locating and apprehending Guerra-Romo. Task force officers determined that Guerra-Romo was hiding out with an associate in a house located in the 9600 block of Dover Ridge. Task force officers initiated surveillance and subsequently observed the home owner departing the residence. Task force officers made contact with the home owner and confirmed that Guerra-Romo was inside the residence. Task force officers entered the residence and Guerra-Romo was immediately arrested.

Guerra-Romo is currently being held in Bexar County Jail awaiting appearance before the Magistrate Judge.

Last Saturday evening, Guerra-Romo and her husband were involved in a verbal argument that turned violent. Guerra-Romo allegedly retrieved a gun and fired several shots at her husband while he was holding their young child in his arms. Guerra-Romo fled on foot before police could arrive. Despite multiple shots being fired, the husband was only struck once in the leg, but the child was unharmed. Guerra-Romo was a fugitive until she was apprehended this afternoon.

Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas, states, “These are sad times when someone commits such a heinous crime that could have resulted in the loss of a husband and a child. I’m proud of our task force officers who worked diligently to take another violent offender off the streets.”
