Conroe police are investigating a drive-by shooting that injured four people this morning.

It happened around 1am in the 1200 block of Pleasant Drive. Officers were called to an aggravated assault in progress. When police arrived, they found four individuals had been shot.

Investigators said witness information indicates that two groups, possibly opposing gang members, had an argument earlier in the evening and one group left the area. A short time later, police said several members returned and fired multiple rounds into a crowd of people in a drive-by.

The vehicle turned around and additional rounds were shot into the crowd as the vehicle left the area, officials said.

Conroe police located the suspect vehicle a short time later and took the sole occupant into custody. A handgun was also confiscated.

Three of the four victims were treated and released. The fourth victim is stable at Conroe Regional Medical Center, police said. According to investigators, everyone involved is between the ages of 16 and 18. The investigation is ongoing.
