An 18-year-old man was arrested Tuesday for his involvement in a drive-by shooting that occurred in March on the 1000 block of South Adams.
Jose Angel Espinoza was arrested at a friend's residence on County Road 122, police said.
Alice Police Officer Nick Reyes with the assistance of Jim Wells County Deputy Ernie Rivera arrived at the residence. A woman at the residence opened the door and officers observed Espinoza. They entered the home and detained Espinoza.
Espinoza was taken to the Alice Police Department to be processed. He was charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
On March 21, officers received several phone calls about a drive-by shooting from neighbors. When police arrived they made contact with witnesses and people at the residence. No injuries were reported.
According to police, a group of individuals had an argument earlier in the day, but the details of the argument are not clear.
During the arrest, Espinoza admitted to ownership of narcotics found in the bathroom of the residence. However, he did not speak about the drive-by shooting, police said.
Officers located 200 grams of synthetic marijuana and six grams of marijuana, Reyes stated.
Espinoza was transported to the JWC jail and charged with additional charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.
Espinoza was given a total bond amount of $1.5 million for the two counts of aggravated assault on a deadly weapon.
