At approximately 5:50 pm on March 12, 2017, TCSO Deputies responded to a report of a drive-by shooting in the 700 block of Hatton Hill Ln. A 15 year old male had sustained a gunshot wound to the abdomen and was transported to UMC Brackenridge in critical condition.

TCSO’s investigation has revealed that the victim and another teen were handling a gun and accidentally discharged it. The victim is currently hospitalized and in good condition. At this time, no charges have been filed related to the accidental shooting, but it is possible that other charges may be brought at a later date.
