One man has been charged with deadly conduct after police said he shot at an SUV during an argument at the Flats on 12 apartment complex in College Station.

Police received multiple calls of shots fired around 6:45 p.m. on Tuesday night at the apartments located at 2101 Harvey Mitchell Pkwy. Officers were told that a red SUV was involved and had fled the scene.

The red SUV was found in an alley on Airline Drive with one person inside. A second person involved was believed to be inside a residence on the same street. Police said the SUV had been struck by several bullets, but neither occupant was injured by gunfire.

Officers were able to locate and interview everyone involved in the incident. They discovered the two occupants of the SUV went to the Flats on 12 to confront two other people in a personal matter, which lead to a fight. 

As the two occupants of the SUV left the scene, one of those involved began firing a handgun at them. The SUV was struck several times and one occupant was later treated at a hospital for injuries sustained in the fight.

The man who shot at the SUV admitted to his involvement and was arrested for deadly conduct. College Station police identified him as 20-year-old Christian Nelson.
