Gunman kills two on Houston expressway
A gunman reportedly killed two people on a major highway in Texas during rush hour on Thursday evening.
Quoting the ABC News, Good Morning America reported that the deadly shooting occurred just before 6 p.m. local time when the suspect’s car struck another vehicle on Interstate-10 in Houston, causing it to spin out.
The suspect and another individual in his car got out in the middle of the freeway.
“Then the suspect, believed to be armed with an assault-style rifle, opened fire at the other vehicle, according to officials with the Houston Police Department.
“The gunman followed the car as it rolled backwards down the freeway, firing multiple rounds.
“He continued to shoot at the windshield even after the vehicle came to a stop,” police said.
The vehicle’s occupants — two men who were 25 and 33 years old — were killed. Narcotics were later found inside their car, police said.
A bystander who saw the shooting took out his own gun and fired several rounds at the suspect, who then ran back to his car, a dark-colored Sedan, and fled the scene, police said.
It’s unknown if the suspect was hit.
Police described the suspect as a man in his 20s who was wearing a red shirt.
