NOLANVILLE, TX — A police officer witnessed a teenage boy shoot two rounds of a semi-automatic pistol out of a car window while he was on patrol Monday night.

Nolanville police said the officer was driving behind a gray Mercury Grand Marquis when he saw a passenger fire the shots toward a home in the 200 block of W. Pine Street.

The officer pulled the car over and detained seven people. A 16-year-old boy was arrested on a weapons charge. Police also arrested 22-year-old Jason Ford for unrelated warrants out of Harker Heights.

Fortunately, no one was hurt from the shooting.

Police said those in the car knew the people who lived in the home on W. Pine Street and that they had been involved in an argument earlier in the evening.
