BAYTOWN – Authorities in Baytown responded to a double-shooting that left two men injured at an apartment complex in Baytown on Monday night.
According to police, dispatchers received multiple calls about the shooting in the 4600 block of Village Lane.
When they arrived at the scene, officers said they found two men with gunshot wounds.
One of the victims was taken by Life Flight to Memorial Hermann Hospital. The other was taken to Clear Lake Regional Hospital by ambulance.
Shell casings littered the crime scene as residents described hearing gunfire at the very busy time of the afternoon.
“I saw one guy brought down to the ambulance,” said Joshua Johnson.
Johnson, who lives at the apartment complex, said the gunfire startled him.
“I was upstairs in my apartment when I heard the ‘boom, boom, boom!’” he said. “I thought it was fireworks because they’ve been doing that all weekend.”
Detectives say three masked men are responsible for the shooting.
Authorities did not release any additional information on the alleged gunmen Monday night.
