ODESSA -- Two men have been arrested in connection to a shooting at an Odessa apartment complex Tuesday night.

Damon Alford, 24, and Tommy Pettigrew III, 19, has been charged and arrested for four counts of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, a 2nd Degree Felony.

According to the Odessa Police Department, their officers responded to a call of a subject with a gun at the Dixie Square Apartments at 10:20 p.m.

When police arrived on scene they met with a group of four people who stated that a man had shot at them while they were gathered near the doorway of an apartment.

A second suspect was also seen acting as a 'lookout' during the shooting.

The suspects then fled the scene before police arrived.

An investigation of the shooting identified the shooter as Alford and the second suspect as Pettigrew, OPD states.

Warrants were then obtained for both of the suspects, who were charged and arrested early Wednesday morning.
