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.
