HOUSTON (CBS Houston) According to authorities, a man was found shot and found  lying in a northwest Harris County street late Sunday.

The shooting took place on Ella at Barren Springs Road around 10:30pm.

Officials stated that the man was shot and was lying in the middle of the street. Surveillance video from a gas station located nearby showed at least two gun flashes.

An eyewitness account indicated that the victim was walking down the street when two men came from the service station across the street and approached him.

A verbal exchange between the victim and the two men took place and then suddenly the suspects opened fire. Further reports indicated that the suspects ran to a vehicle before one of those suspects walked back to the scene and then again pointed the gun at the wounded victim before fleeing.

Authorities continue their investigation of the shooting, combing through footage provided by that surveillance video, determining a motive and searching for the suspects. Anyone that has information that can help officials in their investigation is asked to call the Harris County Sheriff’s Department.
