Gunman opens fire in busy south Houston intersection

Three men and a woman were wounded when a gunman opened fire in a busy south Houston intersection Sunday night.

The shooter and three men were involved in some kind of argument near Holcombe Boulevard and the South Freeway around 10:40 p.m., according to Houston Police Department detective C. Bowling. As the victims’ car was in traffic at a stop light near the intersection, the suspect started shooting at the car, striking the men.

A woman, who was not involved in the altercation, was also shot as she waited for the light to change, police later said. She suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

The suspect sped away as the men drove themselves to nearby Ben Taub Hospital, where they were expected to survive. Their car was seen parked in the emergency room lane riddled with bullet holes.

Police did not release a description of the suspected shooter.

Anyone with information is urged to call Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
