UPDATE: Authorities with the Tyler, Texas Police Department say that Friday afternoon, Guillermo Flores Jr., turned himself in to Tyler Police. He was arrested on the outstanding Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon warrant and transported to the Smith County Jail.

Tyler Police are looking for a suspect for his alleged involvement in a shooting.

It happened around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday evening at the Taco Bell in the 7400 block of South Broadway Street in Tyler, Texas. Witnesses told police that a man, later identified as Guillermo Flores Jr., allegedly fired several rounds, from a pistol, toward Joseph Gilliam. Officers learned that both Flores and Gilliam had gotten into an argument and that argument led to shots being fired.

No one was injured during the shooting and Flores reportedly fled the scene before officers arrived.

An arrest warrant was issued for Flores charging him with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. The bond on the warrant is set at $250,000.

Anyone with information about Flores' whereabouts is urged to contact the Tyler Police Department at 903-531-1000 or Crimestoppers at 903-596-CUFF (2833). Crimestoppers will pay up to $1,000 for information that leads to the arrest and charges filed against the suspects in this case or any felony case.
