Sept. 27 drive-by shooting results in arrest of two teens

ENID, Okla. — Enid Police Department has arrested two teens in connection with a drive-by shooting Sept. 27 in the 400 block of South Jefferson.

Abelardo Mora, 16, and Destry Dean, 17, both were arrested Tuesday night on complaints of use of a vehicle to facilitate the discharge of a firearm.

Both were arrested as youthful offenders, meaning they will face charges as adult defendants would.

Police received a call at 8:31 p.m. Sept. 27 reporting a shooting. The four victims were driving a small white four-door car and the suspects were driving a large light-colored SUV.

Police learned there was a verbal confrontation between people in the vehicles that began at D. Bruce Selby Stadium. Both vehicles traveled 10 blocks to the 400 block of South Jefferson, where multiple shots were fired from the SUV. No one was injured.

Sgt. Bryan Hart said that Mora and Dean were taken into custody at about 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Information received by Detective Tim Doyle indicated Dean was involved in the shooting. Mora was identified by the victims and witnesses as one of the shooters.

Police received further information the two would be in the 1000 block of North Independence on Tuesday, Hart said. Detectives went to the location and took the two into custody.

The teens were interviewed at the police station and both indicated they were involved in the shooting, Hart said.

Mora and Dean are being held at Garfield County Detention Facility, and formal court charges have not been filed.
