A fourth teen has been arrested in connection to two drive-by shootings Thursday morning.

Odessa Police arrested two 16-year olds and two 15-year-olds, charging each with deadly conduct and evading.

One of the 16-year-olds was additionally charged with tampering with physical evidence and theft of a firearm.

Shots first rang out around 9 a.m. Thursday morning on the 800 block of E. 15th St. Police responded to more shots fired nearly two hours later on the 1600 block of Santa Monica.

Their investigation led them to West Odessa where the Ector County Sheriff's deputies saw their vehicle near 31st and Golder. The deputy tried pulling the car over, but the teens jumped out of the car and made a run for it near 33rd and Noble.

Each teen was eventually found and arrested.
