A woman exits a Nissan Altima as police hold her at gunpoint before being handcuffed and detained in a police car after officials stopped the vehicle at Navarro Street and Bottom Road on Thursday afternoon. The car, which had four occupants, matched the description of one involved in a drive-by shooting earlier Thursday.

Four Victoria residents were arrested at gunpoint Thursday in connection with a shooting on Levi and East San Antonio streets, said Lt. Mike Hernandez, of the Victoria Police Department.

No one was injured in the shooting, Hernandez said. Projectiles did hit clothing, but reportedly did not puncture the skin of the victims, he said.

Bianca Ramirez, 19; Darian Luna, 17; Cyrus Cardenas, 17; and Alexia Flores, 17; were all charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, engaging in organized criminal activity and possession of marijuana, Hernandez said.

The report of subjects firing a shotgun from a white Nissan Altima in a drive-by occurred about 1:20 p.m., and officers immediately searched for the vehicle, which left the scene.

The four Victoria teens arrested were driving a white Nissan Altima that matched the description in the shooting and were stopped by police at gunpoint about 1:30 p.m. in the 1200 block of South Navarro Street.

Hernandez said police recovered evidence of the shooting and the investigation is ongoing.

They are being held at the Victoria County Jail. The bond has not yet been determined, according to jail officials.
