On September 16, 2019, San Angelo Police were dispatched to the 1800 block of Coleman Street for the report of shots fired. Investigating Officers located a spent shell casing and nearby home surveillance footage revealed a male driver in a white passenger car discharged a handgun from his vehicle. No one was injured during the incident.
Subsequent to a lengthy follow-up investigation, Detectives with the Department’s Criminal Investigations Division identified a 16-year-old male Juvenile as the suspect. On October 1, 2019, CID Detectives located the teen at a residence in Santa Rita and he was taken into custody without incident.
During a warrant search of the teen’s room, detectives located and seized two handguns, a quantity of suspected Methamphetamine, and a large amount of suspected stolen property linked to several recent burglaries in Santa Rita, Southland, and College Hills.
The teen was initially charged with Deadly Conduct and Possession of Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1 and booked into the Tom Green County Juvenile Justice Center. Additional charges are pending the outcome of this ongoing investigation.
The Department believes this recent arrest will resolve several ongoing investigations and Department Officials are asking for patience during efforts to return the stolen property to the victims.
More information will be released as it becomes available.
