A fight broke out at around 10:40 p.m. Friday at a pool party, and people began shooting outside the leasing office on the 300 block of West Airtex Boulevard, deputies said.
According to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, at least three people fired at the scene.
Sheriff Ed Gonzalez confirmed the two 17-year-old boys were pronounced dead at the hospital and the 20-year-old man, who was shot twice, is expected to survive.
At the same time, a nearby Shell petrol station was bombed with more than 100 young people, HCSO said.
“Girls aged 16 passed out on the floor. They couldn’t breathe. We had to call an ambulance. They refused to take medicine. I don’t know what happened. Then we had heated arguments with children in the store. They didn’t leave. The other side of the story is I had 20 kids parked behind my shop with loaded guns. Here’s the exit door and we kind of trembled too. What’s going to happen next? It’s the same group that’s in right now split into two parts,” said Sameer Khan, a gas station worker.
Sheriff’s deputies said people who may have been involved in the pool party shooting were arrested at the gas station.
