    Police allege a Hitchcock man shot his girlfriend’s ex on Valentine’s Day eve.


    Hitchcock police and Galveston County sheriff’s deputies responded to a shooting call in the 8700 block of Patricia Lane at about 11:30 p.m. Monday, Hitchcock Police Chief Wilmon Smith said.


    “There was a fight between a boyfriend and an ex-boyfriend,” Smith said. “When the ex-boyfriend approached the current boyfriend, the current boyfriend took out a gun and shot him once.”


    Shey Hunter Tyler Withrow, 23, was performing first aid on the ex-boyfriend when authorities arrived at the scene, Smith said.


    Smith did not immediately know what kind of gun was used, but said the man was shot once.


    The ex-boyfriend was taken alive to the University of Texas Medical Branch’s John Sealy Hospital in Galveston, Smith said.


    Officials didn’t have information about his condition early Tuesday.


    Withrow was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and held in the Galveston County Jail without bond early Tuesday, according to jail records.


    He was scheduled to appear before a magistrate judge Tuesday afternoon, Smith said.
