According to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, a shooting occurred on Sunday at a residence in the county’s northwest, leaving two individuals dead and two more hurt.
Gonzalez revised his earlier statement in which he stated that four people were declared dead as a result of the violence and added in a tweet, “Incident possibly stemmed from a breakup/divorce, but not yet confirmed.”
There is reportedly no active threat to the neighbourhood, and the scenario is under control.
On Sunday morning, tragic violence broke out in the 8700 block of Cypressbrook Drive.
As of the time of this reporting, no victims have been named, and authorities have not yet provided an update on the health of the two victims who are still alive.
The shooting occurred two days after local police shot and killed a juvenile who allegedly pointed a gun at them.
According to FOX 26 Houston, the youngster, who is thought to be 17 or 18, was shot by a Houston police officer at an apartment building in the 6700 block of Bennington just before 9 p.m.
According to the police, they went to the scene in response to a social media post. They claim that when they arrived, they ran across a group of individuals who were carrying weapons.
According to reports, one of the men was carrying an assault rifle, and the officer pursuing him claimed that the man pointed the weapon in his direction before the officer opened fire numerous times.
The teen was brought to the hospital, where doctors declared him dead. In the upcoming days, the medical examiner is anticipated to reveal his identity.
Police reported that five firearms in total were found at the scene and that seven or eight individuals were questioned about the fatal shot.
“If anybody comes into contact with police officers, do me a favour; please drop the guns, and let’s all go home safely,” HPD Chief Troy Finner told ABC13 Houston.
