Man Arrested For Drug Charges Surprisingly Confessed To Taco-Truck Shooting In Houston

Houston, TX: A shocking incident came to light after a man arrested for drug charges surprisingly confessed to Taco-Truck shooting in 2022.

Prosecutors claim that Jeremy Hartman was allegedly contracted to commit a shooting at a taco truck in southwest Houston. This surprising disclosure emerged after Hartman’s recent apprehension on unrelated accusations.

On November 3, 2022, a gray Cadillac approached a taco truck in the 8700 block of S. Braeswood near Gessner. Police reports indicate that shots were fired from a vehicle, hitting 19-year-old employee Sergio Chavez in the head and just missing his father.

Investigators promptly focused on Hartman as a potential suspect in the weeks after the attack. After being arrested on February 8 for marijuana possession, Hartman was formally charged in relation to the taco truck shooting.

Assistant District Attorney Alexander Fryer made a shocking claim during a court hearing: Hartman reportedly confessed to a witness that he had been paid to carry out the shooting. Hartman’s attorney, Brian LaVine, strongly disputes his client’s involvement in the alleged scheme and questions the reason for the delay in charging him.

Hartman is charged with aggravated assault causing serious bodily harm for the incident involving the taco truck, in addition to three other pending felony charges connected to alleged acts of violence and aggression.

Hartman is still detained on a $500,000 bond.
