HPD: 5 shot during argument inside nightclub on Houston's northside

Police said one of the victims is in critical condition at the hospital. The other victims are expected to make a full recovery.

HOUSTON — Five people, including three teenage boys, were shot early Saturday morning inside an after-hours nightclub in Houston's northside.

This happened at about 2:34 a.m. in the 10200 block of North Freeway

Houston police said when officers arrived, they found a 24-year-old man who had been shot in the leg. That person was taken to a nearby hospital. 

The second victim, a 25-year-old man, had been shot in the chest. He was taken to the hospital in a private vehicle.

Investigators said the remaining victims, all three in their late teens, were also taken to the hospital in private vehicles. HPD said one teen suffered a gunshot wound to the arm, the second teen was shot in the leg and the third was shot in the hand.

Police said an argument inside the club led to the shooting. One person pulled out a pistol and started shooting.

The gunman got away and has yet to be identified. Investigators described the shooter as a tall, slender man in his early 20s with a light skin tone.

Police believe the victims and surveillance video from inside the club can help them identify and locate the suspect.
