Early Wednesday morning, about 12:05 am., on December 1, Sheriff’s deputies responded to an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon call in Rosenberg that actually occurred in the 700 block of FM 359 just outside of Richmond.
According to sheriff’s spokesperson Terriann Carlson, Rosenberg police detained four suspects who are believed to have been involved in a shooting in the 700 block of FM 359. Carlson said the preliminary investigation revealed that the 19 year old male victim made his way back to his home in Rosenberg and contacted law enforcement authorities regarding the shooting. Carlson said Rosenberg police located the alleged suspect vehicle, a black Ford Taurus, in the 1000 block of Miles Street, in Rosenberg.
Rosenberg officers held the suspects and a pistol recovered from the Taurus until deputies arrived on the scene. Ultimately the four teens in the car were arrested and subsequently confessed to their part in the incident, said Carlson.
