Police investigating Snapchat video of man shooting gun after KPRC2 report

HOUSTON – A KPRC2 report about a Snapchat video of a man firing a gun out of a vehicle has led to a police investigation.

KPRC2 first reported Friday that a viewer sent in a Snapchat video of a man seen shooting a loaded gun outside the window from the backseat of the vehicle somewhere in Houston.

Nine rounds can be heard in the video. It is unclear from the video if anyone was injured. 

KPRC2 brought the video to the attention of Houston police on Friday.

HPD said Monday they are asking for the public's help to identify the man.

Police believe the shooting took place in the last week of March or first week of April.

Houston police said Tuesday the shots were fired near 20700 Hempstead Highway and Huffmeister Road in northwest Harris County.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office will handle the investigation since the shooting is believed to be in the jurisdiction of the county.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Harris Co. Sheriff's Office at 713-221-6000.
