Fabre fired shots at the house, and several struck the building, according to the STPSO.
Two adults and three children were inside the home at the time of the drive-by.
Officers caught up to Fabre and his cousin on July 24 when they were spotted shooting dice with McDowell in front of a home in Covington.
Fabre had marijuana in his pocket and McDowell had a stolen pistol in his pocket at the time of their arrest, according to the STPSO.
All three teens face five counts each of assault by drive-by shooting, along with assorted drug and weapons charges.
