ODESSA - An Odessa man is behind bars for a shooting over the weekend.

Odessa police say they responded to a shots fired call in the 1500 block of Grant Street Saturday night.

Officers say it started with a fight between 36-year-old William Ray Fitzgerald and his girlfriend 25-year-old Sarah Marie Henderson.

The argument turned violent quick and passerby's tried to jump in and help the woman.

That's when Fitzgerald pulled out his gun and began firing into the air.

Fitzgerald put the gun to the woman's head and ordered her to get in the car and that's when police caught up with them.

Because Sarah Marie Henderson had an arrest warrant out, both were arrested.

Fitzgerald and Henderson are behind bars at the Ector County Detention Center.
