3 Teens Hurt After Gas Station Shootout


HOUSTON, TEXAS — Three teenagers are currently hospitalized following a violent altercation at a southeast Houston convenience store.

The incident occurred in the early hours of Friday morning in the parking lot of a Shell gas station on Beamer Road, near the South Beltway, according to KTRK.

According to police, a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old in a Chrysler 300 encountered another group in an SUV, which led to a fight and subsequent exchange of gunfire.

“We don’t know exactly why they got in a scuffle, but somehow they did, and they both exchanged fire,” stated Lt. R. Willkens. After the shooting, all parties fled the scene.

Deputy constables nearby heard the gunshots and pursued the Chrysler 300. Upon stopping the vehicle, they discovered both teenagers inside had sustained gunshot wounds.

The 16-year-old was injured in the chest and hand, while the 17-year-old suffered an arm wound. Both were transported to the hospital for treatment.

A 14-year-old boy, believed to have been in the SUV during the altercation, later arrived at the hospital with a chest wound and is reported to be in critical condition.

Authorities found numerous bullet holes in the Chrysler 300, along with cash, drugs, and a weapon. Shell casings were also discovered at the scene.

Houston police are currently reviewing surveillance footage in hopes of obtaining further information on the incident.
