CROSBY, Texas - Bullets from an apparent shootout Friday narrowly missed two children playing outside in northeast Harris County.
The Harris County Sheriff's Office responded to Barrett Road Friday afternoon. Deputies haven't yet found a victim, but blood at the scene indicates someone was shot. Shell casings were found in the driveway of a home and several vehicles were also hit.
A neighbor tells KHOU 11 News he saw at least one of the shooters, who he says was armed with a high-powered assault rifle. That neighbor’s children, a 9-year-old boy and 13-year-old boy, were playing in a backyard swimming pool when the shootout happened.
One of the bullets hit the pool where the kids were playing, but thankfully, both boys were unharmed.
