Staff Report

ODESSA - An Odessa teen is recovering after taking a bullet to the back in a drive-by shooting, but instead of driving to the hospital, he went to family for help.

Police tell us the teen drove to a relative's home on Whirlaway in West Odessa, but the drive-by actually took place on Odessa Street in town.

The teen told officers he was driving with his girlfriend when a red or orange colored jeep drove by and shot at them.

He was hit in the back and drove to a family member's house in west Odessa who called an ambulance.

The teen was released from the hospital...and expected to fully recover.

His girlfriend wasn't hurt.

This is the second drive-by shooting in Odessa this week.

If you have any information, call police at 333-3641 or CrimeStoppers at 333-TIPS.
