Gunshot fatalities: 2 gunshots and 2 gunshot fatalities following a dispute in SE Houston

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — Four men were shot dead in a home after a dispute between two groups in the South Acres area early Saturday morning, Houston Police Department said.

Two young men were pronounced dead at the scene. One injured person was taken to hospital in critical condition and operated on. The fourth man suffered non-life-threatening injuries and is said to be fine, officials said.

According to Assistant Chief Ban Tien, the shooting happened after a gathering of nine or 10 people at a house on Block 4100 of Madden Street, off Leitrim Way.

Around 1 a.m., another group of men entered the home and confronted the first group, police said.

HPD believes an altercation led to a shootout between the two groups.

“It looks like they’re all acquaintances. They know each other. At this point we don’t know if they were invited or not. But that will be part of the investigation,” said HPD Asst. Chief Ban Tien Sadi. “All we can ask is that you keep the families of the victims in your prayers as you can imagine what they are going through.”

Police said there were several guns and shell casings in the house.

The identities of the victims were not released until the family was notified. Police said the four people who were shot were between the ages of 17 and their early 20s.

There is an active investigation to determine what led to the shooting.
