HOUSTON One teenager was killed and three others were wounded in a shooting at a southwest Houston house party early Saturday, police said.
According to the Houston Police Department, some cars drove up to a house party in the 4400 block of Tiffany near Quention just after midnight and started shooting.
When police arrived at the scene, they found one male teen dead from gunshot wounds, investigators said. Witnesses said he may also have been hit by a car fleeing the shooting scene.
Police also found another teen a block over, who fled the scene after being wounded in the thigh.
Witnesses told police of a Chevy Impala that fled the scene, which they were able to locate in the parking lot of a donut shop near Hiram Clarke and West Orem. Inside they found two more teens with gunshot wounds, who were then transported to Ben Taub Hospital in stable condition.
The teen found wounded in the thigh was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital in stable condition as well, police said.
The large house party was attended mostly by 17 and 18-year-olds. It was not clear what prompted the shooting in which, according to neighbors, more than 25 shots were fired.
There are no suspects in custody at this time.
