HOUSTON -

A man was shot in the back at a northeast Houston strip center late Thursday night.

Police said the man was with his girlfriend in a Cadillac in the parking just off the North Freeway and Korff around 11:30 p.m. Thursday.

Investigators said a Dodge Charger pulled up and someone inside pulled out a gun and shot one time through the driver's side window.

Investigators said the bullet hit the man in his back. He was transported to the hospital in serious condition. His girlfriend was not hurt.

The Dodge Charger drove away.

Houston police said the strip center had security cameras, and they will look through them to see if they can help to identify the suspects.

It is unclear why the man and his girlfriend were targeted.
