GRANEJENO, TX (KVEO NEWS CENTER 23) — Authorities are investigating a Sunday shooting, in Little Mexico, which may be gang related.
Deputies were called to the South Tower Estates (Little Mexico) after hearing sounds of gunfire around 8 p.m. on Sunday.
A vehicle, speeding in the area, was pulled over and the driver informed officers that he was chasing several vehicles that had shot at his home and injuring his brother.
The victim, Miguel Lerma, had been shot in the upper right arm and had driven himself to a local hospital.
Investigators followed up about the shooting incident and found out that an earlier confrontation, between the PO'Boys gang and the Southsiders resulted in a drive-by shooting, a retaliation act by the PO'Boys against the Southsiders for the earlier fight.
There are no suspects and the investigations continues.
