HOUSTON – Police are working to sort out what happened after a car drove into a crowd outside a downtown club sparking a shooting overnight.

According to the Houston Police Department, it happened around 2:30 a.m. Thursday in the parking lot outside of a club that had just closed for the night in the 1700 block of Travis near Jefferson.

Investigators said there was a crowd of people in the parking lot when some sort of argument ensued and a car with three occupants drove into the crowd. The car hit at least one person who smashed the windshield from the impact. 

Then at least one person and possibly a second pulled out a gun and started shooting at the car as the driver backed up, striking a pole.

Police said an officer responded to the shooting found three males inside the car down the street, two who had been wounded. One had been shot in the leg.

When the officer went back to his car to call for an ambulance, all three males took off running. Police said they got away.

No charges have been filed at this time, as the investigation is continuing.
