HOUSTON – An investigation was underway after a woman was struck by a stray bullet during a deadly shootout outside her northeast Houston home early Saturday.

Houston police said they first received a call around 3:40 a.m. about a car crash in the 3700 block of Crandon Street near Cavalcade Street, followed by multiple calls for shots fired in the same area.

When officers arrived, they found two vehicles--both with paper plates--with heavy damage and bullet holes on the street.

One person was found lying on the ground near a white Mercedes-Benz. That person was pronounced dead at the scene.

An innocent woman was inside her home when multiple rounds hit her house. The woman was struck in the leg by a stray bullet and drove herself to the hospital for treatment. Her injury was non-life threatening, according to police.

Police recovered two guns and a shotgun in the vehicles. Multiple shell casings were also found up and down the streets.

It is unknown how many people were involved in the shooting.
