Four teenagers suffered injuries in a drive-by shooting early this morning in Conroe, and police believe it could be gang related.

Around 1:00 a.m., Conroe Police were dispatched to the 1200 block of Pleasant Drive. Witnesses at the scene told police two opposing groups had a verbal argument earlier in the night until one of the groups left. Witnesses say several members of the group who left previously showed up again with weapons and shot several rounds into the crowd of people outside.

Police were able to track down the vehicle where they found a handgun and arrested the only occupant. Only one victim remains the Conroe Regional Medical Center and is in stable condition.

Conroe Police believe all individuals involved at the scene are between the ages of 16-18. Names of the victims and the suspect have not been released.
