A 29-year-old local rapper was killed in a shooting in the 1000 block of Calvin Avenue in northwest Houston, according to Houston Police Department.

Three others were injured and taken to area hospitals, officials said.

HPD said the shooting appears to be gang-related and retaliatory. Officials said an assault rifle may have been used in the shooting based on the castings at the scene.

Police also said there is a high probability that they were targeted.
