SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police arrested a teenager who detectives said shot a 15-year-old boy after he refused to buy marijuana from her.

The teenager is identified in an arrest affidavit as Clarissa Alexander, 17.

According to the affidavit, Alexander gave her cellphone number to the victim after they met on Monday at his apartment complex.

The victim told police they later met up at the apartment complex's park, where he and his friend sat down at a picnic table with Alexander.

After he refused to buy marijuana from her, the boy said Alexander pulled out a 9mm handgun and shot him in the foot, according to the affidavit.

While the shooting was being investigated and the victim was being treated for his gunshot wound at St. Luke's Hospital, the detective said in the affidavit that officers were called to the same apartment complex later that night for a report of an aggravated robbery.

When officers arrived, a man told them a woman robbed him and fired a shot inside his apartment, the affidavit said.

The armed robber was taken into custody and detectives later discovered Alexander fit the description of the person who shot the victim earlier in the day.

According to the affidavit, detectives recovered a 9mm pistol, a shell casing inside the robbery victim's apartment and another shell casing at the park.

Detectives said when they dialed the number given to them by the gunshot victim, Alexander's cellphone rang.

Alexander is being charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony.

Her bail has been set at $75,000.

The affidavit does not disclose whether a separate charge for Alexander has been filed regarding the aggravated robbery report.
