According to Lt. Crowson with HPD, a vehicle drove down Conrad Sauer Street, which is a side street next to the apartment complex, and several shots were fired outside the vehicle’s window, striking at least two apartments, Crowson said.
“The 14-year-old was in that apartment and unfortunately, she was struck,” Crowson continued.
Authorities said the teen was sleeping in her bedroom when the shooting happened.
Investigators have obtained surveillance video and are talking to witnesses.
Property Supervisor, Jack Yetiv said he’s working with authorities and offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
“We’re offering $1,000, but we’re also going to highlight to the residents that it’s a dangerous world. We’re very proud that they were not able to come on to the property, but we also are showing you that without being on the property, they can still do a lot of damage,” Yetiv said.
He said the person who he believes was the intended target of the shooting has been relocated.
Activist Quanell X also said he’s going to match Yetiv’s reward.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division at 713-308-8800 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
