Local teen arrested following pursuit after shots fired from vehicle

WACO, Texas (KWTX) A local teenager was jailed Thursday and police were looking for two other suspects following a chase that ended in a crash after someone in the car in which he was riding started shooting from inside the vehicle.

Christian Norwood, 19, is charged with deadly conduct.

His bond had not been set Thursday morning, according to online records.

An officer was in the area when the shots were fired from the vehicle at around 7:45 p.m. Wednesday in the area of North 20th Street and Mitchell Avenue, Officer Garen Bynum said.
