Cuero men charged in shooting; victim in ICU
Two Cuero men are being held at the DeWitt County Jail after they reportedly shot a 19-year-old Cuero man twice in the face Friday morning.
Wesley James Whiten and Ronell Green, both 19, were arrested Friday by the Cuero Police Department, according to jail records.
Both men are being charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and are being held in jail in lieu of a $100,000 bond.
Brandon Perez, the wounded man, was taken by helicopter to Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio on Friday morning, said Cuero Police Chief Jay Lewis.
He remained in the intensive care unit Saturday, said his mother, Stephanie Perez, and has already underwent multiple surgeries. She said although some think the motive for the shooting may be gang related, her son is not a gang member.
