HOUSTON – One man was killed and another was critically injured in a shooting at a north Houston gas station overnight, Houston police said.
At approximately 1 a.m. Sunday morning, officers with the Houston Police Department were dispatched to a Texaco gas station located at 9602 Jensen Drive in reference to reports of shooting.
When officers arrived on scene they found two men who had sustained multiple gunshot wounds.
One of the men was pronounced dead at the scene. The other had been shot twice in the back and was transferred to an area hospital in critical but stable condition, police said.
Investigators believe the shooting stemmed from a carjacking. A preliminary investigation determined the men had pulled into the Texaco gas station to fill their tank when an unknown gunman in a grey pickup truck drove up beside them and began shooting at them.
When officers arrived on scene, the victims’ vehicle, a Grey Dodge Durango with black rims, was gone.
The case remains under investigation by the Houston Police Department. The investigation is in its early stages and at last check, officers at the scene were working to gain access to the gas station’s surveillance footage.
