1 dead, 2 injured in west Houston apartment shooting

A man is dead and two others were injured when someone opened fire on the trio shortly after midnight Thursday morning at a west Houston apartment.

The group of four men was conversing in the parking lot of the complex in the 10900 block of Meadowglen Lane around 12:10 a.m. when one of the men started shooting, police said. One of the men was killed while the other two were injured but are expected to survive, police said.

Immediately after opening fire, the shooter hopped into a dark four-door sedan, which fled north toward Westheimer Road, police said. There might have been another person inside the car as it fled, possibly a getaway driver, police said.

Paramedics pronounced the one man dead and rushed the two others to Ben Taub Hospital, where they remained in surgery later Thursday morning, police said.

The gunman got off several rounds, although police did not have an accurate number during a press briefing. Witnesses gave conflicting information about the make and model of the getaway car, police said, but each said it was a dark-color, four-door sedan.

The victims’ identities were not immediately released.

Anyone with information is urged to call HPD’s Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
