Beaumont police have arrested a man in connection with a shooting in front of a liquor store north of downtown Thursday evening.

Edward Tezeno is in the Jefferson County jail charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon

Police say Tezeno shot the victim once in the right leg as he attempted to cash a check at the store.

It happened in front of Messina's Liquor Store in the 1400 block of Magnolia Avenue.

The victim's name has not been released.

Ironically a Jefferson County grand jury had indicted Tezeno Thursday on a separate aggravated assault charge.
