Suspect in Montgomery County Shooting Arrested

A teen in Montgomery County is behind bars after a weekend shooting that left three people wounded.

Joshua Lewis, 18 of Magnolia, faces two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Lewis was arrested at Tomball Hospital after allegedly firing on people in a home on Turtle Dove Lane in southwest Montgomery County Saturday afternoon. Lewis reportedly suffered a cut to the head in the incident.

A 19-year-old was critically wounded, but is expected to live, according to the sheriff's office. Another teen was hit in the arm, and a 23-year-old received a flesh wound.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office notes one of the three victims chose not to press charges against Lewis.

Authorities say their investigation will continue, but that they do not believe more arrests will be made. Originally, the sheriff's office had noted two suspects were believed to have fled from the scene.

Deputies believe the incident was the result of a feud between two groups. More details on the dispute weren't released.
