A man has been arrested after arguing with and shooting another guest at a wedding reception over the weekend.

Hours after a couple tied the knot, two wedding guests got into a verbal altercation inside Holy Spirit Church's parish hall around 12:30 a.m. on Sunday. The argument then moved outside, where Juan Vicente Flores allegedly shot Marcos Villegas-Martinez.

Authorities told KSAT that Flores fled the scene in a white Ford pickup truck. He left Villegas-Martinez laying on the ground outside the church.

The 33-year-old victim was taken to University Hospital in critical condition but succumbed to his injuries Sunday morning.

The archdiocese released a statement on its Facebook page.
Flores will reportedly be charged with first-degree murder.
