On 11-12-22, at approximately 8:15pm, the New Braunfels Police Department was called to the 1500 block of Lahn Road for a report of shots fired. Responding officers arrived to find a number of spent casings in the middle of the roadway and were able to determine that the shots had been fired from a silver SUV occupied by several males. No injuries were reported, no damages were found, and the vehicle was initially unable to be located following the shooting.
Less than an hour later, at approximately 9:10pm, officers were called to the 100 block of Luckett Drive for a report of a similar vehicle occupied by three males, possibly with firearms. Officers arrived in the area and located a silver 2020 Toyota Rav 4 that was reported stolen out of Comal County. Officers initiated a traffic stop, but the vehicle fled from officers down Post Road to Business 35. The pursuit continued until the vehicle failed to negotiate the turn at South Business 35 and Spur St., causing the vehicle to leave the roadway and come to a stop when it crashed into a brushy area of the median. All three occupants of the vehicle then attempted to flee on foot. Two males ran across Spur St. towards Hidalgo Ave. where they were apprehended by officers. The third male hid in the wooded brushy area of the median, but was located and apprehended using NBPD drones and K-9 officers. A search of the vehicle led to the discovery of a handgun with ammunition consistent with the shell casings found on Lahn Road.
Two of the males that were detained were juveniles. The driver, a 14-year old male from New Braunfels, was charged with Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle and Evading with a Vehicle. The front seat passenger, a 15-year old male from New Braunfels who was found hiding in the woods, was charged with Evading on Foot, Theft (between $2,500 and $30,000), and Unlawfully Carrying a Weapon. Both juveniles were taken to the Guadalupe County Juvenile Detention Center.
The third suspect, identified as 19-year old Jaydavon Aguirre of New Braunfels, was transported to the Comal County Jail and charged with Evading on Foot and Theft (between $2,500 and $30,000). As of this release bond had been set at a combined $8,000 and he remains in custody.
No injuries were reported during this incident, which remains under investigation and additional charges may be pending.
