BARRETT STATION – One person is dead and multiple people were shot in the Crosby area Sunday afternoon. The Harris County Sheriff’s Office responded to reports of a shooting at a strip center parking lot in the 12000 block of Crosby-Lynching around 3 p.m. Sunday, June 11.

Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said four to five were involved in the shooting. Three persons were in a car, and joined by two others. An altercation and gunfire started inside the car, and continued outside. One person was fatally wounded, and three others were shot. Two were taken to a location on Barrett Road and two others transported themselves to a hospital.

Sheriff Gonzalez said that at around 3 p.m., a gray Dodge Charger pulled into an empty commercial center parking lot with three people inside. There were two young black men, sitting in the parking lot before approaching the car and getting in, officials said.

That is when investigators said they believed an altercation happened inside the vehicle, leading to an exchange of gunfire. Still, it is unclear who fired first, Sheriff Gonzalez said.

“We want to know who pulled the trigger,” he said.

From there, investigators said two people, a man in his late teens or early 20s and a 14-year-old, were dropped off at Barrett Station Evergreen Cemetery on 560 Barrett Road, about four blocks from the initial scene. According to investigators, first responders found the man dead from his injuries at the cemetery. The injured 14- year-old was taken to a hospital.

Two people who remained inside the vehicle drove themselves to the hospital and were also treated for gunshot wounds, investigators said.

One person, who was not injured, drove away from the scene in the Charger, which Gonzalez said investigators are still looking for.

Sheriff Gonzalez said a motive has not been determined for the shooting, but may involve a drug transaction. Authorities are looking for the grey Dodge Charger vehicle. Call Crime Stoppers 713-222-TIPS if you have any information.
