Teen accused of shooting at homes in Southeast Side neighborhood

A teen is accused of peppering three Southeast Side houses with gunfire during a drive-by shooting Sunday night, according to court records.

Shayan Zendehdel Arjaghi, 18, was initially booked into jail Tuesday for unlawfully carrying a firearm and possession of marijuana. He had also been out on bond in connection with a previous arrest for unlawful carrying of a weapon and possession with intent to deliver in November 2019.

He was charged Thursday with three counts of deadly conduct with a firearm in connection with Sunday’s shooting.

On March 1, San Antonio police said Arjaghi drove through the 3500 block of Goliad Road and fired at three houses, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

Residents in each home told police they were asleep until they were awakened by gunfire.

Police said one home had 12 gunshots to the backside, and a vehicle was shot three times.

Two children, ages 9 and 10, were inside the home when the shooting occurred. They were not injured, investigators said.

A woman in another house told police that she was asleep when she heard the barrage. Investigators said her home was hit twice, and that one of the bullets went into her living room where she was sleeping.

In the third home, a bullet went into a master bedroom, according to the affidavit.

During his arrest Tuesday, Arjaghi allegedly possessed a .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun. Investigators said the shell casings from the gun were consistent with those found at the crime scene.

Before the additional charges were handed down, Arjaghi posted bonds totaling $103,500. He was still in jail Thursday on $175,000 worth of bail.
