Suspect charged in Fort Sam Houston shooting
By CHRIS TOMLINSON
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Prosecutors have filed a federal criminal complaint against a man suspected of shooting his common-law wife on Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio.
Alvin Roundtree is in custody Tuesday. His wife is in stable condition at a military hospital.
The complaint alleges that the 51-year-old carried a .45 caliber pistol onto Fort Sam Houston on Monday and got into an argument with his common-law wife. He then allegedly shot her multiple times. Federal prosecutors have charged him with domestic violence and Roundtree is scheduled to appear before a federal magistrate on Thursday.
If convicted, he could face 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Roundtree is in federal custody because the shooting took place on a military base, and the FBI is investigating.
