Group of men with Spanish roots shoot a music video in a parking lot in Houston when they are attacked by strangers. Two men die from gunshots and seven are injured.
Two people were killed in a gun attack during a music video shoot in the US state of Texas. At least seven others were injured, the authorities said.
The group of young Hispanic men “made some kind of music video” in a parking lot in a residential area of Houston, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said at a press conference. They were attacked “practically from the ambush”. The motive is still unclear.
Two people died on site, seven were hospitalized. The condition of an injured man is critical, Gonzalez said. A video posted by a Houston Chronicle reporter on Twitter showed blood stains on the floor of the parking lot and bullet holes in several cars. According to government reports, around 40,000 people died in the U.S. in 2017 from gun violence.
