Teen arrested after drive-by shooting on motorcycle

HUDSON — Riding on the back of a three-wheeled motorcycle he stole, a teenager shot up a house on Islander Lane, deputies said.

Pasco deputies arrested Giomar Santiago, 16, Wednesday after they found him at his Spring Hill home with the gun used in the shooting, as well as the motorcycle. They also found two other guns in his laundry, according to his arrest report.

It all started March 10, when Santiago went to the motorcycle owner's house, police said, went in the garage and stole the Can-Am motorcycle — one with two wheels in the front and one in the back, the report says.

He kept the motorcycle for three months, showing it to family and friends.

Then, on Wednesday, Santiago asked Christopher Harvey, 17, to drive him to another teen's house. Riding on the back of the motorcycle as Harvey drove, Santiago shot the house three times and a car outside once, according to the report.

Three people were in the house but none was injured.

Harvey told police Santiago shot at the house because he was mad that the teen who lived there "disrespected a girl on Facebook."

Santiago, who is a gang member, records say, is charged with shooting into an occupied house, grand theft auto and delinquent possession of a gun. Harvey was charged with delinquent possession of a gun.

They were both released to their parents Thursday.
