One man was charged Tuesday with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after a morning shooting that left another man seriously wounded.

Manual Trey Rojas, 18, was arrested early Tuesday after another man called police dispatchers just before 2 a.m. to report he’d been shot, police spokesman Cpl. Allen Bjerke said.

Officers found a 21-year-old man sitting inside his vehicle in the driveway of a residence in the 1100 block of First Avenue South, Bjerke said.

The man had a single gunshot wound to the chest and was transported by Texas City EMS to a University of Texas Medical Branch hospital in Galveston, Bjerke said.

He was in serious condition Tuesday, Bjerke said.

Rojas was being held in Texas City on Tuesday evening awaiting transfer to the Galveston County Jail, Bjerke said. His bond was set at $100,000, Bjerke said.
