HOUSTON – A woman was killed and two men were injured when gunfire broke out outside a southwest Houston hookah lounge early Saturday, police said.

Officers were called about 2:10 a.m. to the 11700 block of S Wilcrest Drive, where they found three people shot in the parking lot of the hookah lounge.

The woman was pronounced dead by first responders, said police, who identified the victim as Italia McGregor, 24. Two men were taken to a hospital and were stable.

The gunmen fled the scene in a white Dodge Charger, police said. A search for the men is ongoing.
