HOUSTON — Police are looking for six gunmen who opened fire on a group outside a southeast Houston apartment complex early Thursday.

In all four teenagers suffered wounds, but the good news is all of the victims are expected to survive, according to police.

Police said the gunmen were armed with rifles and pistols. They stormed the complex and began shooting toward a group of people hanging out in the courtyard. The suspects then fled the scene.
