HOUSTON – An investigation is underway after two women were found dead in an apartment Friday evening, according to the Houston Police Department.

At around 6 p.m. Friday, officers were dispatched to a report of shooting at an apartment located in the 3200 block of Norfolk Street.

After a search of the complex, officers located two adult women dead inside an apartment unit. According to police, they appeared to have suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

“Initial investigation shows this to be some kind of domestic incident between one of the females and an ex-boyfriend,” said HPD Lt. Larry Crowson. “We don’t believe there’s a danger to the general public.”

Witnesses reported seeing a possible suspect fleeing the scene moments after the shooting. 

The suspect is described only as a white male, 20-30 years old, approximately 6 feet tall, with a slim build and wearing a gray shirt and shorts, according to police. He was seen driving a black BMW sedan with New Jersey license plates YJT-75Y, according to police.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of this individual or in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
