HOUSTON (KTRK) — Two people were killed and more than a dozen were injured when gunfire rang out at a house party in the Cypress area of northwest Harris County last night, and officials say two suspects remain at large.
It happened on Enchanted Creek near FM 529 sometime between 11pm and midnight
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office says 18 people were shot. Two of those people — a man and a woman, officials tell us — are dead. One was killed at the scene and the other died after being transported to Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital.
In all, 22 people were injured. That leaves six people who were not confirmed as shot. They may have been hurt while trying to escape, authorities said
We’re told two of the 22 victims are in critical condition, and the conditions of the others vary. A total of four people were taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital and three people treated at Ben Taub. Eight to nine people were taken to Methodist West Hospital.
According to HCSO, close to 100 people were inside the home when the shooting happened. As the gunfire erupted, they fled the home in a panicked rush to escape.
