ROUND ROCK, Texas (KXAN) — Video from a Snapchat story helped police find two people accused of shooting a gun near a Round Rock school at the end of August, according to an affidavit.

Two 22-year-olds, Jonathan Alexander Patton and Jimmy Neal Campbell III, face deadly conduct charges. 

Early in the morning on Aug. 26, police responded to shots fired near the fields behind Stony Point High School at 1801 Tiger Trail. A woman who called after hearing the shots told police her daughter had seen a Snapchat video from the account “Jimmy-icarrypistols” and she believed some of the people in the video were her neighbors.

The Snapchat video was recorded about 3:18 a.m., while a 911 call about the shots came in at 3:19 a.m.

Officers went to a home on the 1700 block of Goodson Court and found people there who looked like those in the video, including Patton and Campbell.

At one point in the video, Patton points the pistol in the air and fired four shots in the direction of nearby homes, the school and road, according to the affidavit. The affidavit also describes the video showing Campbell shooting three times toward the east, and Campbell allegedly said, “I ain’t got no more bullets” at the end of the video.

Patton and Campbell are in custody in the Williamson County Jail. Each has bond set at $20,000.
