The shooting happened shortly after 12 p.m. on December 11, 2018 near Seville and Sambrano in South Central El Paso.
Police said 41-year-old Ricardo Cereceres fired shots at Bermudez and his partner, Esteban Villalobos.
Police arrested Cereceres a.k.a Ricardo Herrera, after an hours-long manhunt that led to a SWAT standoff at a residence located on the 100 block of North Clark.
El Paso Police charged Cereceres with two counts of attempted capital murder. The bond for the capital murder charges is $2-million, but Cereceres is jailed without bond on a felony probation warrant stemming from federal weapons charges, police said.
Host of the show and ABC News correspondent, Dan Abrams, along with hundreds of other people, sent Bermudez well wishes.
