An arrest affidavit is shedding light on last week's shooting on Lee Highway, which ended in a SWAT standoff and arrest in Harrison Monday.

According to the report, Cleveland resident Joshua Santana and another man got into an argument at the Mapco on Lee Highway early on the morning of March 19.

The affidavit says Santana owed the other man money. Police say the two got into separate cars and drove to the back of Intown Suites at 5730 Lee Highway.

That's when police say Santana shot him in the chest.

Police responded to the hospital after staff said the 23-year-old victim had arrived, suffering from life-threatening injuries.

On Monday, March 25, Chattanooga police and the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office arrested Santana in Harrison.

Our NewsChannel 9 SkyCam was up in the air as officers led Santana out of a house on Clark Road.

He has been booked into Hamilton County Jail on $100,000 bond, charged with attempted murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony.
