Sean Xavier McGrath, 31, was arrested late Tuesday morning for an ambus shooting that seriously injured a Bellmead man him inside his home around 5 a.m. Tuesday, authorities said. 

Authorities with the Lacy Lakeview Police Department and the McLennan County Sheriff's Office apprehended McGrath near Elm Mott. Bellmead Assistant Police Chief Brenda Kinsey said McGrath was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony.

Bellmead police were called to the 1100 block of Pawnee Street around 5 a.m., where they found a man in his 30s shot at least three times. Kinsey said the victim was found inside his garage and suspected the shooting may have been targeted.

Police canvassed the Bellcrest neighborhood Tuesday morning and gained information about the suspected shooter. Kinsey said McGrath was arrested in the 500 block of Cherokee Street, near Elm Mott, around 11 a.m. He was booked into the McLennan County Jail.

Kinsey said it was unclear if, or how, the victim and suspect knew each other.

The victim was seriously injured and taken to a local hospital for treatment, where he remained Tuesday morning.

One additional person was home at the time of the shooting, but no one else was injured, Kinsey said.
