Three males are behind bars for a shooting at a Vivian apartment complex.

The incident happened Sunday afternoon in a parking lot at Monterrey Hills Apartments. According to the Caddo Sheriff’s Office, three men went to the complex to continue an argument that had started earlier in the day at a separate location with another man.

Afterward, the suspects — who were in two vehicles — pulled to the edge of the parking lot and fired back into a crowd that was standing outside.

Detectives say 17-year-old Tymon Sanders of Vivian was visiting family at the complex, and was in the parking lot when the shots were fired. He was hit in the thigh and was taken to North Caddo Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Deputies say 30-year-old Portia Ashley was getting into her vehicle when she was grazed by a bullet. She was treated at the scene by Caddo Fire District #8.

Arrested in the incident were 24-year-old Darius Owens and 23-year-old Demetrius Owens, both of Rodessa, and 19-year-old Joshua Martin of Ida. The Owenses were charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder. Martin was charged with being a principal to attempted first-degree murder.
