One wounded in drive-by shooting


One person was wounded here Sunday night during an apparent drive-by shooting.
Cuero Police said they were dispatched to the Crain and Fischer street area around 11 p.m. because neighbors reported hearing four to five gun shots.
While investigating, the police were notified a gun-shot victim was being treated at Cuero Community Hospital.
The victim, Marcus Perez, 18, was being treated for a non-life threatening wound to his arm and chest. He was transferred to a Victoria hospital for additional treatment.
Perez was reportedly on the porch of a house at 602 Crain when he was shot.
This is the third time in three months the police have investigated a drive-by shooting and the first during that period that a person was wounded.
Cuero Police said they have no suspects in this drive-by shooting incident. Anyone with information that can help in this investigation is urged to contact Cuero Police at 277-3552.
