Splendora Police Arrest Three Teens After Shooting Investigation

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX- On April 5, just before 1 a.m., the Splendora Police responded to an assault involving a gun at the intersection of Ruby Street and Dallie Sue Street. According to Police Chief Wally Wieghat, Officers arrived to find a 17-year-old male who’d been shot in the back of his leg.  Officers administered first aid until medics arrived and transported the teen to an area hospital. He appeared stable at the time of the incident but was considered critical.

The victim remains hospitalized, now in stable condition. Splendora Police determined the suspects and victim were in the process of making a drug deal when things turned ugly. At that point, investigators believe two male suspects exited a car and fired multiple shots at the victim, but only struck him with one round. Evidence shows they then pulled up to the victim, retrieved the narcotics in question and some personal items from him, and then fled from the scene.

Police say the entire incident was captured on multiple security cameras from different nearby residences. SPD went door-to-door, searching for possible videos, and collected three to add to the other evidence.

Splendora Police obtained three arrest warrants for the shooting suspects, and a fourth arrest warrant is a possibility. They also seized the vehicle that was allegedly used in the crime, and obtained multiple search warrants, which were executed within days of the incident

“We obtained multiple search warrants which were executed within a few days after the incident occurred and the vehicle that was used in the Aggravated Robbery was recovered and seized for evidence,” Splendora Police Chief Wally Wieghat said. “After positive identification, all suspects have been apprehended and are being charged with Aggravated Robbery with a Deadly Weapon.”

John David Ibarra, 17, of Splendora is charged with first-degree felony Aggravated Robbery.

Steven Sandoval, 17, or Cleveland is charged with first-degree felony Aggravated Robbery.

Brock Doyle Alsobrooks, 17, of Splendora is charged with second-degree felony Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.

Ibarra and Sandoval are believed to the shooters, and each of their bonds were set at $75,000. Alsobrooks is believed to be the driver. As of this posting, his bond amount was not yet available.
