HOUSTON — A 13-year-old is recovering in the hospital after being shot in the leg during a drive-by shooting overnight.

It happened on Locksley near Wayside Drive in northeast Houston overnight.

Investigators say they don’t have a motive in the shooting yet. They say the owner claimed to not recognize the car involved.

Investigators say a gray vehicle pulled up in front of a house on Locksley around 11:30 p.m. Sunday. That’s when they two males started shooting up a car and the front of the home with 9mm and 40-caliber guns.

A mother and her three children were inside the home. Her 14-year-old daughter was struck in the leg while she was asleep in bed.

No one else was hit.

“They’re nice people. I mean, I see ‘em every day. My child goes to school with ‘em, they board the bus with ‘em every day, nice people. So just, the random shooting of it man, it’s unacceptable man,” Nate Flores, a neighbor, said.
