3 wounded after suspect opens fire from U-Haul truck outside nightclub at Houston’s south side, HPD says

HOUSTON – Houston police say 3 people were shot by a suspect who allegedly opened fire from a U-Haul truck outside a nightclub on Houston’s south side Saturday morning.

According to HPD Assistant Chief C. Hatcher, officers with the Major Assaults Division responded to a shooting call in the 6900 block of Cullen Boulevard near Idaho Street at around 4:48 a.m.

Hatcher said witnesses reported that a suspect who was apparently driving a U-Haul box-shaped truck drove by a crowd of people outside the nightclub and allegedly opened fire at them.

Three people -- two women and one man -- suffered gunshot wounds, according to Hatcher. All three of them were taken to area hospitals where one of the women remain in critical condition. The other two remain stable.

It’s unclear what led to the shooting at this time. Police did not provide a description of the suspect, and the vehicle has not been located.

An investigation is ongoing.
