ODESSA - An Odessa man, accused of gunning another man down, tried to fool officers with a fake name but they didn't buy it.
49-year-old Juan Bejarano is sitting behind bars.
He's accused of shooting 58-year-old Gerardo Bustamantes in the head on Saturday night.
Bejarano and another man were caught by officers leaving a home on Van Street after getting a call about gunfire.
We're told Bejarano had a gun and gave officers a fake name and date of birth.
Turns out he's an ex-con.
Bejarano has been charged with aggravated assault and being a felon with a firearm.
The second suspect was interviewed and released.
Bustamantes underwent surgery for the gunshot wound.
He remains in critical condition at Medical Center Hospital.
