2 people are dead following a shooting at an apartment complex in SE Houston

HOUSTON – Two men, one in his early 20′s, the other in his early 30′s, were found shot to death Thursday afternoon in the parking lot of an apartment complex.

The shooting was reported around noon on Broadway Street near Bellfort Avenue.

It appears the men may have been ambushed while sitting inside their vehicle, which was in the parking lot.

“This incident involved approximately four vehicles, boxing the victims in, and involved a lot of shots getting discharged at the scene,” said Asst. HPD Chief B. Tien.

Multiple shell casings were found on the ground surrounding the victim’s vehicle.

Investigators said witnesses reported seeing four vehicles fleeing the scene after the shooting.

Two vehicles matching the description of two of the four vehicles involved were stopped in the parking lot of a nearby shopping center.

Investigators continue to process the crime scene, looking for any clues that could lead them to the suspects.

“We are in the process of looking for additional surveillance. We are digging through surveillance videos and interviewing all potential witnesses out there. Our officers were able to recover one firearm,” Tien said.

Police haven’t said anything about a motive for the killings nor do they know how many suspects they are looking for. They’re asking for the public’s help.

“If you have any cell phone footage, if you see anything, please call us. I don’t care how minor the information may be. Every single bit and piece of information counts and it’s going to be important to us,” Tien said.
