HOUSTON (AP) — Police say the fatal shooting in a Houston home of a 10-year-old boy and a 29-year-old woman and the wounding of a third individual is believed to be drug-related.

The boy has been identified as Brandon Vu and the woman as Le "Lena" Nguyen. Police say 40-year-old Hoai Tranh Vu, who was the boy's father and the woman's boyfriend, remains in critical condition Tuesday at a Houston hospital. All three were shot in the head.

The shooting was discovered Monday afternoon when Hoai Vu's other son returned home from school.

Police found no signs of forced entry or struggle, but witnesses reported seeing two men flee the home in a hurry in a gray car. No arrests have been made.
