It began with two men fighting in the street and ended with bullets flying. One bullet reportedly went through a METRO bus window.
- Six people were shot in two triple shootings across Houston. Three of them were shot totally at random, including a customer and bartender inside a bar in the Canal Street on the East side. About 11:45 last night, a metro bus driver saw two men fighting in the intersection of Canal and North Milby.
One man pulled out a pistol and started firing. A bullet went through the bus window. But thankfully, no one on the bus was hit. Another bullet went through the wall of a bar. That bullet did hit one man sitting at the bar and the bartender.
- One bullet went through the wall of the bar and actually hit. And we believe it's one bullet. It hit an adult male sitting at the bar and the bartender. So as far as we can tell, it looks like one round went through that wall. And there may be more, but we're going to find out more about that later.
- Both the bartender and customer, thank goodness, will survive. A few minutes later, police spoke to a man who was shot in the arm. He told them he was simply riding his bike when a bullet hit him. He too will survive. Police are still trying to find the original shooter.
- We're here at 3900 Canal. The call came in just about 15 minutes before midnight. So the initial call came in. We had two individuals who were shot inside the bar located over here to my right. One bullet went through the wall of the bar and actually hit.
And we believe it's one bullet hit an adult male sitting at the bar and the bartender. So as far as we can tell, it looks like one round went through that wall. There may be more, but we're going to find out more about that later.
We have numerous casings over here at this intersection. At the same time that this all occurred, there was a metro bus driver that was driving through the intersection. He saw two Hispanic males fighting, fist fighting over here at the intersection, and then he saw one of them pull a pistol out and started firing.
The bus driver sped up, and the rounds that were fired, one of the rounds went through the bus driver's window. And that's when he stopped and called the Metro Police. And then we believe one of those rounds are the round that went through the wall and ended up hitting our patrons inside the bar.
Both of those males are going to live. Right after we got here, we got another call of another victim that was over the-- just across the way, about a block away that he was claiming that he was riding his bicycle in the area, and he randomly got shot in the arm. We're not real sure if this individual is going to be involved somehow possibly in the fight and if he's telling us the truth, but we're working on that.
So investigators are going, officers are canvassing the area, seeing if we can find any more evidence. But as of right now, we've got three adult males shot, nobody is going to die, and we're just trying to get to the bottom and figure out exactly what happened. Any questions? OK. All right, that's done.
