Man Arrested for Deadly Drive-by Shooting

ECTOR COUNTY - Two months after a deadly drive-by shooting, a man is behind bars charged with the crime.

Ector County deputies arrested 21-year-old Adrian Chavez. He's accused of killing 23-year-old Luis Roman back in August.

Deputies found Roman's body in the street on West 47th, right outside of a crashed pick-up. Investigators say Roman had been shot in the shoulder and was thrown out of the pickup when it wrecked. Another person in the truck was treated for minor injuries.

We're told Roman crashed after being hit by gunfire. A black SUV followed the men after they left a nearby club where a fight took place. Deputies say Chavez was one of the people in the SUV that opened fire on them. Deputies are still investigating.
