2 teens flown to hospital after shooting in Baytown, officials say
BAYTOWN, Texas – Four people were hit by gunfire, including two teenagers were transported by Life Flight, in a shooting at a home in Baytown, officials said.
Baytown police arrived at the 1300 block of Pine Street to find four teens injured after two men came into their home and got into an altercation, which then turned violent.
Dominic Martinez, one of the victims, now limps when he walks up his front steps.
"It went in through here, through the back. Hit my ankle bone and ricocheted out," Martinez said.
The 18-year-old was shot in the leg early Sunday. He said the two men, one of them he knew, barged into his home.
"Anthony, me, Jordan, we all used to go to alternative school with that one dude," Martinez said.
Police said an argument broke out and the intruders began shooting.
"Put my brother in critical condition and one of my best friends in critical condition; shot him five times and my brother twice," Martinez said.
Martinez said all four of them were shot and two of them were airlifted. His brother Jordan is still fighting for his life.
"He's in critical condition right now. He had a main artery hit. They're trying to do a triple bypass or something like that. Nothing good," Martinez said.
He said he's been attacked before, but by different men.
"This happened to me already twice. The first time, it was just me. It was just me here alone. They cracked the back of my head open," Martinez said.
He said he doesn't know what else to do, and maybe it's time to move. He just hopes someone is held responsible.
"I just hope the shooters, suspects, whatever you want to call them, I hope they get caught. I just want this to all stop happening," Martinez said.
Police are looking for two black males, about 6 feet 3 inches tall, between 130 and 150 pounds. One may go by the name of "Tim."
Police said they fled in a silver Chevrolet Impala.
