A Houston man has been arrested and charged in connection to a drive-by shooting that left a mother and her 11-year-old son wounded.
Keandre Jackson, 19, has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault.
Early this morning, his bond was set at $500,000 total.
Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said on social media the 11-year-old victim was involved in an argument with a group of teens at a separate home.
Jackson’s middle school-aged cousin was one of the teens that was involved in the fight with the 11-year-old over a girl.
Investigators believe Jackson drove up to the home where both the 11-year-old and his mother were sleeping inside and fired four shots.
"The mother is in stable condition after she was hit in her pelvic area and rushed to an area hospital. Her son was life-flighted to Texas Children’s Hospital in critical condition, where doctors said he may now be paralyzed from the waist down due to a spinal cord injury. The boy was hit in the neck, court documents said.
“it seems to be targeted at that window so there were four shots all struck that one window,” said HCSO Detective Isaac Barnett"
