A man has been arrested for a shooting Christmas morning in El Paso's east side.

Police say they arrested 35-year-old Roy Lopez Wednesday and charged him with Criminal Attempted Murder.

He's accused of shooting Gerardo Munoz-Marquez, 39, in the 11800 block of Don Meredith early that Christmas morning.

Police didn't have to look far for him; they say he was already being held at the El Paso County Detention Center on a separate unrelated charge.

He's being held on an additional bond of $100,000.

No details were released about what led up to the shooting.
