1 teenager dead, 2 injured in gunfire at Exxon gas station along Gulf Freeway in southeast Houston, police say

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — A teenager is dead and two are in the hospital after a shooting at a gas station in southeast Houston, according to the Houston Police Department.

At 10:23 p.m., HPD responded to a shootout at an Exxon gas station on the Gulf Freeway near Astoria.

A Pasadena police officer was in the area and heard gunshots.

Upon arrival, police said they found a teenager who had collapsed dead in an SUV.

“A witness (saw) the children screaming for help and carried them as the hospital is just down the road. Thinking there was a quicker way, he helped pull her out. Then he came back to the crime scene,” HPD Asst. Boss Patricia Cantu said.

Investigators said the witness drove both teenagers to the Hermann Southeast Memorial.

From there, one of the teenagers was taken to another hospital in critical condition, according to Life Flight’s Cantu. A bullet grazed the other teenager who stayed behind at the Hermann Memorial.

An officer at the scene told ABC13 that both are expected to recover from their injuries.

Investigators said surveillance video showed the suspects holding a “long gun” and an automatic. Six bullet holes were visible on the windshield of the victim’s SUV. Police said several shots were fired, but the exact number is unclear.

As of Sunday morning, HPD is still looking for two suspects and believes everyone involved knew each other.

Police describe the suspects as black men, one wearing dark shorts and a black shirt. And the other suspect is wearing dark clothing, long pants and flip flops with white socks.

Because there were several cars at the gas station and the suspect’s car was parked in the back, investigators say they don’t have a very good description of it.

If you have any information about this case, authorities urge you to contact the Houston Police Department’s Homicide Division at (713) 308-3600.
