The shooting in the 1300 block of Levi Street on Thursday was gang related, Lt. Mike Hernandez, of the Victoria Police Department said Friday.

Two shots were fired from a 12-gauge pump shotgun in the drive-by, Hernandez said. No one was injured, though projectiles did hit the clothing of the victims.

Four Victoria teens were arrested about 1:30 p.m. Thursday in the 1200 block of South Navarro Street in connection to the incident.

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.

Police did not find the weapon in the search of the white Nissan Altima the teenagers were driving but in the 500 block of East Third Street later in the afternoon.

Each suspect is being held in the Victoria County Jail on a $151,000 bond.
