HARRIS COUNTY, Texas - A woman is recovering Friday morning after she was hit several times during drive-by shooting, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

The woman, 21, was returning home from work just after midnight, when investigators said two vehicles with about six men came down the street near Cross Draw and March Creek Drives in north Harris County. According to deputies, two men exited one of the vehicles and opened fire, hitting the woman twice in the back and stomach.

The woman was taken to Memorial Hermann hospital via LifeFlight and is now in stable condition, deputies said. According to a family member, she was on the phone with her sister when she was fired upon.

Deputies said the student is also a bartender and had about $600 on her when the shooting happened. None of the money was touched, investigators said.

The victim is a business student at the University of Houston and one of eleven children, investigators said.

Deputies said more than a dozen shell casings were recovered from the street.
As of now, investigators have no motive for the attack and no details on possible suspects.
