The women said as they drove by, Contreras and the three other men started "cat calling" in their direction and they heard the gunshot as they attempted to speed off.

Police say they found a shell casing just underneath the balcony where Contreras had been standing.

They later arrested Contreras and recovered the loaded gun from his truck.

He faces charges of aggravated assault, and discharging a firearm in city limits.
