(SOURCE)   Three people were killed in execution style shooting and two critically wounded after gunfire erupted inside a suburban Houston apartment Wednesday afternoon.

The shooting happened about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Sunbury Downs Apartments in an unincorporated area 25 miles northwest of downtown Houston.

A young man and two young women died after each was shot multiple times, including the head, and another man and woman were airlifted to Memorial Hermann-Texas Trauma Institute in Houston with similar gunshot wounds, said Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia.

Both were in critical condition, and detectives were at the hospital awaiting a chance to interview the two, he said.

He said the victims were in their late teens to early 20s and that their names would not be released until their families could be notified.

‘It’s a waste of human life that we’re talking tonight once again about young people who will not get to fulfill the promise that they were born with,’ Garcia said according to ABC 13.

‘This scene is still very fresh and as we have more progress and perspective on the scene, we will be sharing that with you,’ Garcia said.

Deputies have no description of the gunman. Witnesses say a man shot the victims inside the one-bedroom downstairs apartment, closed the apartment door and fled, Garcia said.

All of those shot were seated when the gunfire started, he said. There were no signs of forced entry or struggle.

Garcia said investigators found firearms and a substance that appeared to be an illegal drug inside the apartment. He did not specify.

The sheriff’s office has not yet released the identities of the victims, but they’ve all been described as young and Hispanic. One of the dead females is 18, and the male is 20.

The suspect is at large but no description of him is not yet available.

  1. I was with a fellowship of about 20 men the other day and the main theme the leader drifted into was the subject of the accelerating over the past 6 months of horrific crimes of all sorts. At some points in conversations there is near outrage over the harm to innocent victims. Some turn away with no interest to know, others focus sharply, while some are unresponsive to whatever may be the situation. I can only take my own personal stand and know that with God being kicked out of our nation by the courts and school, lawlessness is abounding just as the bible said it would. this is another marker for the coming collapse, it’s just a matter of time before we are out of time.
