HOUSTON – Two people were killed in a shooting Wednesday near a motel in southwest Houston.

The incident happened at about 4:30 p.m. in the 14640 block of South Main near Fondren.

Police said it all began when four men got into an argument in the parking lot of the Fuel Depot gas station.

Police said one man pulled out a weapon and shot two men.

A witness said he heard ten gunshots fired.

“I started seeing everybody ducking and dropping to the floor,” said Marco Perez.

One of the men died in the parking lot, and the second victim ran across the street to a motel parking lot. He was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Witnesses said the shooter fled in a dark grey, four-door, early 2000 Honda Accord.
