The son of New Mexico state legislator, Democrat Stephanie Maez, has been charged in a drive-by shooting.
A popular 17-year-old high school athlete killed by a bullet fired from outside a house during a summer get-together of teens. Friends said Jaydon Chavez-Silver, who was killed when a bullet hit him in the neck as he watched friends play cards, didn’t have a beef with anyone. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Late Friday, police provided a piece to the puzzle when they arrested a young man whom they believe was involved in the shooting that night.
The teenager they arrested, 18-year-old Donovan Maez, is the son of state Rep. Stephanie Maez, D-Albuquerque.
He was charged with an open count of murder, child abuse resulting in great bodily harm or death, three counts of child abuse, assault with intent to commit a violent felony, 10 counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, shooting at or from a motor vehicle and conspiracy to commit a first- or second-degree felony and booked into the Metropolitan Detention Center.
The article goes on to say Maez’s son has a criminal record including breaking and entering and drug related issues.
The article isn’t clear on how the gun(s) were obtained or who used the gun(s) involved in the shooting.
