AUSTIN (January 3, 2014) Jesus Rodriguez, 32, was held Friday in the Travis County Jail, charged with murder in a New Year's Eve shooting outside of an Austin hospital that left another man dead.
His bond was set at $250,000.
Rodriguez was arrested after the shooting Tuesday night outside of University Medical Center Brackenridge in Austin.
Hospital security personnel said they heard an altercation and then gunshots at around 11:50 p.m. Tuesday.
The victim, Michael Charles Norwood, 47, died early Wednesday in the hospital’s emergency room.
Officers arrested Rodriguez a short time after the shooting.
Police documents say that Rodriguez said he went to the hospital for back problems and a place to hide from people he thought were trying to kill him, but hospital officials asked Rodriguez to leave.
