Man jailed after witnesses heard screams, gunfire
A 27-year-old New Braunfels man remained behind bars in San Marcos Thursday on charges including deadly conduct, unlawful possession of a firearm and failing to identify himself to authorities.
Logan Bushman is being held in Hays County Jail under bonds totaling 35,000.
According to San Marcos Police, responding to an email from the Daily Record to City Hall, said officers rushed to the area of Comanche Street and MLK Drive around 2:17 a.m. Thursday after witnesses reported hearing a woman screaming, wood breaking and shots being fired.
They located the source in the 200 block of Comanche and made contact with a female resident. She told them she had picked Bushman up in New Braunfels earlier in the day and that he had a firearm with him.
Shortly before the 911 calls were placed the two had “a disturbance,” the police email said, without elaborating. The officers found Bushman hiding in a laundry room and the firearm, which police did not describe, hidden in a clothes dryer.
“Bushman gave a false name to the officers,” the email read. When they learned his true identity, it also became known he was named in a warrant for parole violation
“Officers could not locate all the locations for the shots that were fired but they did find that the TV inside the residence had a bullet hole in it.”
The charge of unlawful possession was added to the other charges when officers discovered Bushman’s criminal history prohibited him from carrying a gun. The parole violation was for a warrant out of Austin. Bushman’s Hays County criminal history shows an arrest for assault in June; another for evading arrest with a vehicle in September 2017 and a third for resisting arrest in August of last year.
