MEXIA, Texas (KWTX) – Nathaniel Lee, 20, of Teague, is facing firearms and drug possession charges after a shooting Wednesday evening in Mexia that sent a man and a teenager to a local hospital.

Officers responded to the shooting at around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at an apartment complex at 1125 North Ross Ave. in Mexia.

A 26-year-old man whose name wasn’t released was treated at Parkview Regional Hospital for cuts from glass from a car window that shattered when it was hit by shots fired by a suspect who was fleeing the complex, police said.

The driver of the vehicle who dropped the teenager off at the hospital matched the description of the man who fired the shots, police said.
