A La Joya man has been charged with first-degree murder stemming from a shooting in McAllen that he claimed was self-defense. 30-year-old Gerardo Chapa Wednesday was brought before a judge who set bond for Chapa at $75,000.

McAllen police responded to the shooting Monday afternoon in the 2000 block of Redbud Avenue. It was Chapa who had called police, saying he shot a man, but in self-defense. However, a homicide investigation resulted in the filing of a charge of murder.

Killed was 56-year-old Luis Alonso Gonzalez Sanchez. Investigators say there’d been some sort of argument between the two men.
