SAN ANTONIO – A 17-year-old man accused of shooting at three homes, including one that had two children inside, has been arrested.

Shayan Zendehdel Arjaghi has been charged with three counts of deadly conduct with a firearm and one count of unlawful carrying of a weapon after the drive-by shooting on Sunday, according to Bexar County Jail records.

According to San Antonio police, residents in three separate houses in the 3500 block of Goliad Road on the South Side woke up to the sound of gunfire.

Arjaghi was arrested on Tuesday for an unrelated warrant and was found in possession of a .45-caliber semi-automatic handgun, according to the affidavit.
