Drive-by shoot­ing leaves two in­jured

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - CITY | STATE -

Two men were in­jured overnight in a drive-by shoot­ing in Sun­ny­side.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened around 12:15 a.m. Satur­day as they sat in a red sedan out­side a bar at Reed and Scott.

Some­one in­side a ve­hi­cle driv­ing slowly on Reed opened fire on the men, then sped away.

The in­jured pas­sen­ger was hit in the back and arm. At least one bul­let struck the driver’s arm, but he man­aged to nav­i­gate the ve­hi­cle about 2 miles to a mo­tel at Reed and Almeda for help.

The in­jured men were found at the mo­tel by Hous­ton po­lice of­fi­cers and fire­fight­ers.

The back win­dow of their ve­hi­cle was shot out and bul­lets rid­dled the trunk.

Both men, iden­ti­fied by a Hous­ton Po­lice De­part­ment sergeant as lo­cal rap­pers, were trans­ported for treat­ment in stable con­di­tion. Their names were not re­leased.

HPD is in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the shoot­ing is urged to con­tact HPD’s homi­cide divi­sion at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stop­pers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
