5 teens arrested for Big Spring YMCA shooting

Five teens, including a 13-year-old, have been arrested in connection to the shooting that left a 19-year-old in the hospital.

BIG SPRING, Texas — UPDATE: The Big Spring Police Department have charged another person in connection to the shooting at the YMCA back on February 2. 

On February 17, BSPD obtained two felony arrest warrants for 39-year-old Chasti Stevens. On February 22, Stevens responded to the warrant division in Midland and turned herself in. 

Stevens has been charged with Tampering/Fabricating Physical Evidence and Hindering Apprehension/Prosecution/Known Felon. 

The investigation is still ongoing and we will continue to update this story as we receive more information. 


The Big Spring Police Department is investigating a shooting that occurred at the YMCA located on 800 S. Owens on Feb. 2. 

When the police arrived to the scene, a 19-year-old male victim was wounded with a shot to the abdomen. He was being treated by YMCA staff and the Big Spring EMS were dispatched to the scene.

The victim was later transported to Scenic Mountain Medical Center before being flown out to UMC Lubbock for further treatment. 

The initial investigation revealed that the 19-year-old victim and another juvenile were standing outside the YMCA when a Silver Chevrolet Impala 4 door drove by. 

This triggered the juvenile with the 19-year-old victim to start shooting at the car. The front passenger of the Impala, who is believed to be a juvenile as well, began shooting back at them, which lead to the 19-year-old victim being shot in the abdomen. 

The mother of the juvenile driver returned to the scene later on to hand the car over for evidence purposes. This appears to be an ongoing feud with the individuals involved according to the Big Spring Police.

On Feb. 3 one of the juveniles involved in the shooting incident was arrested by BSPD and is currently in custody of the Howard County Juvenile Probation office. The juvenile is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. 

A second person, another 15-year-old boy, was taken into custody on Feb. 6. He is also charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Detectives are still looking for the other three juveniles involved in the incident. 

Despite them being minors, a Big Spring magistrate has allowed the names and pictures of the three suspects wanted in this case to be released.

Police were looking for Kerdoby Morin, a Black male who is 16, Jason Diaz Jr., a Hispanic Male who is 15 and Dijuan Ausbie Jr., a Black male who is 13.

BSPD says at 3:45 p.m. they located Diaz and Morin found hiding inside a resident in the 1200 block of E. 17th. 

At 1 p.m. on Feb. 9, Ausbie turned himself in at the Big Spring Police Department. He has been taken into custody and will be turned over to the Juvenile Probation Office.

Morin and Diaz were wanted for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, while Ausbie is wanted for deadly conduct. Officers expect additional charges will be filed for each teen at a later date.
