LAREDO, Tex. (KGNS) - A father is arrested for allegedly shooting at the direction of a group of teens who reportedly got into a fight.

Jose Alonzo Trevino Jr. is facing charges on two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

On Monday night, Laredo Police received a call about a person who was injured as a result of a shooting near the 200 block of Flathead Circle.

When officers arrived, they found no one at the scene but according to eyewitnesses, shots did ring out in the area, and someone was taken to the hospital.

After further investigation, officers found that the victim was not shot but physically assaulted.

Bullet casings were found at the scene and Trevino was later arrested in connection to the crime.

According to Investigator Joe Baeza, the case began when a group of teens carried over an argument from school to the Flathead neighborhood.

Baeza said that the teens knocked on Trevino’s door and Trevino allegedly allowed his teens to participate in the fight and that is when one of the teens got injured.

“At that point, it’s alleged in the report that the dad went into the home and retrieved the weapon and discharged the firearm at teens that were there at the home, there was a vehicle that was shot out,” said Baeza.

No additional injuries were reported in connection to the shooting.

Reports say Trevino was found after he returned from Nuevo Laredo that evening.

He was taken to the Webb County Jail.
