License plate leads to arrest in Sugar Land Town Square shooting incident

SUGAR LAND, Texas —  Sugar Land police arrested a man who allegedly discharged a firearm near a business in Sugar Land Town Square Wednesday night.

Police began receiving reports of shots fired just before 11 p.m.  Witnesses said the shots were fired into the air from a black sedan as it drove by. No one was injured; however, two windows were damaged on the sixth floor of an adjacent office building.  Police recovered about 10 shell casings fired from more than one weapon.

A nearby license plate recognition camera captured a license plate from the suspect’s vehicle.  Detectives used the information to locate the driver, who later confessed to firing a weapon into the air that hit the building.

Jarodd Deon Wilson, 19, of Missouri City, was arrested and charged with deadly conduct, a third-degree felony.  Detectives believe at least one additional shooter is still at large.
