Houston Crime: 14-year-old girl shot in stomach in W. Houston car shootout

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – A 14-year-old girl is the latest victim in a series of acts of violence against children in the Houston area.

Houston police say she was injured when a drive-by shooter shot into her family’s Westview, near Gessner, west Houston home overnight.

The 14-year-old girl was asleep in a bedroom at the time she was hit in the stomach, HPD said. She is expected to survive.

According to investigators, the shots hit several units facing Conrad Sauer Drive.

The shooting happened just after 9 p.m. Tuesday, and HPD believes the shots came from a car driving past the complex.

The police are looking for surveillance videos. The main attack unit determined.

Unfortunately, this is another gun violence case that harmed a young person in the Houston area.

Children like 9-year-old Arlene Alvarez, 11-year-old Darius Dugas and 15-year-old Diamond Alvarez are just some of the young people killed by gun violence.

Ashanti Grant, 9, is still hospitalized and fighting for her life after she was shot in the head during what police say was a street riot in early February.

Her family hopes she recovers and is also praying for the shooter’s arrest.

Ashanti’s father had a message for those who act recklessly.

“These children are our future. And we can’t live on this earth forever. Someone has to take over when we come over and leave here,” her father said. “If you continue to hurt the children, you will have no one left to rule this world and this country. Violence against innocent children must stop.”

Investigators are looking for surveillance video of the incident and are trying to get a clear picture of the car involved.
