HOUSTON – It was a busy night for local authorities across the Houston area. Four people were killed in three separate shooting on Tuesday night and a stabbing early Wednesday morning, officials said.

Broadway Shooting

The first shooting happened at an apartment complex near Hobby Airport.

Officers responded to a reported shooting around 7 p.m. at the Broadway Casa Apartments Tuesday night, Lt. Larry Crowson said.

First responders found a man, identified as 38-year-old Anthony Brown, Jr., dead in the courtyard of the complex, Crowson said.

“The residents reported hearing several gunshots and then they called us that the male was deceased in the courtyard,” he said.

Investigators said it is unknown if the man lived at the complex.

Police said they believe multiple suspects using multiple firearms opened fire on Brown, killing him. Homicide investigators are trying to locate witnesses and surveillance video.
