    Details of 22-year-old Edwin Ospino’s arrest were revealed during a hearing in Harris County Probable Cause Court on Thanksgiving Day.

    Ospino, charged with deadly conduct and discharging a firearm into a building or vehicle, had bail set at $20,000.

    His public defender argued for a lower bond amount since he is responsible for a child.

    In court, prosecutors stated officers were called to Cottage Grove Park for a report of a gunshot.

    No one was at the park when officers arrived.

    Investigators identified the handgun used in the Snapchat video as a .40 caliber glock.

    Officers received a photo of the suspect and matched the person to the video using a matching tattoo.

    A prior mugshot out of Fort Bend County was also used to match the suspect to the Snapchat post.
