The victim was not hit after the suspect's wife grabbed the firearm. The suspect fled.
Police recovered from the scene a cartridge case of .45 caliber.
Hot pursuit operation led to the apprehension of the elder Renojo and his younger brother, who both yielded a .38 caliber loaded with six cartridges, and a .45 caliber with a magazine and loaded with six cartridges.
