BAYTOWN, Texas – A gunman was said to have been shot and killed by police Wednesday night after he reportedly murdered one man before injuring four more by gunfire during a shooting spree in Baytown.
Here’s what happened:
According to Baytown police, the initial shooting took place after the gunman reportedly got into an argument with a man and a woman who were sitting in a vehicle.
Officers say at some point during that argument, the gunman shot the male victim in the head and also shot the woman. The man was pronounced deceased and the woman is expected to survive her injuries.
Moments later, while the suspect and victims were still at that scene, an innocent bystander drove by and apparently attempted to see what was going on during the altercation.
The gunman then reportedly opened fire on that bystander, also injuring her.
Police say the suspect fled to one final location and then got into another argument with a man who was also unrelated to the initial shooting scenes.
That’s when officers say the gunman opened fire on that innocent man. That victim remains in critical condition.
When officers located the suspect, he allegedly opened fire on police. Officers say they returned fire, and ultimately killed that gunman.
