BRYAN, TX — A 17-year-old and 22-year-old were hit during a drive-by shooting near a city cemetery Friday.

Bryan PD says around 1 p.m. on Friday, November 1, officers responded to the 1000 block of Dale Street near the Bryan City Cemetery for reports of a shooting.

A 17-year-old boy of Bryan and 22-year-old woman of Bryan were driving in the area when multiple shots were fired from another vehicle.
