Deputies have arrested a teenager for a drive-by shooting Tuesday morning in east Travis County.

Jessie Navarro, 19, is now being held for aggravated assault.

Investigators say the victim was driving along River Road near the border with Bastrop County when a car passed them and they heard a loud pop.

The victim turned and tried to get a plate number. They saw flashes from the SUV that looked like gunfire, court documents say.

Detectives say at that point the victim stopped following them, and deputies were able to track the SUV to a nearby home where they found shell casings and the gun.

Investigators arrested Navarro.
