HOUSTON (CBS Houston) A couple and a baby were ambushed Tuesday evening, leaving two dead after the attack. Police continue to search for answers.
The incident happened just before 6 p.m. at the Avery Park Apartments complex located off West Gulf Bank near TC Jester. Two people were dead and a third was in surgery.
According to police, the couple and eight-month-old baby arrived home when at least two men ran up to the car and started shooting. The shooting suspects shot over the woman and the baby, who were in the passenger seat; bullets did hit the baby’s father. There was a return of fire that possibly came from him or someone else.
Three people were taken to the hospital; two, including the baby’s father died.
The identities of the other two shooting victims were not immediately known. The mother and the baby made it to safety.
As authorities piece clues in the case together, they are asking anyone with information to come forward to help in their investigation.
Homicide investigators are now working in collaboration with HPD’s gang division to determine whether the shooting was gang- related.
Although police have recovered two guns from the scene, they have not rounded up any suspects in the shooting.
