Two people were shot in a fight among southeast Houston neighbors, police said.
Houston police said two groups of neighbors were outside of their home talking around 9 p.m. Monday when an argument began and the groups started fighting.
One of the groups left to go get more people and a gun, Houston police homicide detectives said. The gunman returned and opened fire.
"I heard one gunshot," said neighbor Timothy Fusk. "After the first gunshot, I heard three others.
Fusk said he has been living on Pershing Street for 45 years.
"I've never seen anything like this," he said. "I tried to go outside to see what happened, and police told me to get back."
A Hispanic woman and a Hispanic man were both shot.
Officials said the man was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital in critical condition. Tuesday afternoon authorities said he had made a "slight" improvement in his condition.
The woman was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital where she remains in critical condition.
Homicide detectives said there were many witnesses to the shooting.
At this point, no arrests have been made.
