Two people were killed and seven others wounded in a drive-by shooting that occurred during the filming of a music video near Houston, Texas.
The Houston Chronicle reports that one among the seven wounded suffered a shot to the head and is in critical condition.
The Chronicle noted that “a group of Hispanic men in their 20s was apparently filming a music video around 9:30 p.m. in a warehouse complex in the 500 block of Smart Street when another group began firing from a car.” The number of gunmen is not known.
Deadline quoted Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez saying, “We believe they were filming some type of music video when all of a sudden, basically, they were ambushed, we believe by individuals in cars and/or foot that fired shots into the parking lot area.”
Update: we are now at 9 total gunshot wound victims: 2 were confirmed deceased at scene, 1 was critical, the others remain hospitalized. Anyone with info is urged to call @CrimeStopHOU at 713-222-TIPS. https://t.co/f0AtkRMZGH
