HPD: Teenage girl killed in ambush-style shooting outside liquor store; 4 suspects wanted

Investigators released surveillance screenshots of the suspects involved in a shooting Monday night on W. Tidwell Road in northwest Houston.

HOUSTON — Houston police released surveillance images Tuesday from an overnight ambush-style shooting that left a 19-year-old girl dead and two men hospitalized.

Investigators are searching for four men believed to be involved. The Houston Police Department has not released the complete video.

Officers responded to reports of shots fired about 9:30 p.m. Monday outside a neighborhood liquor store on the 8100 block of W. Tidwell Road in the Kempwood area. 

Moments later, police reportedly found the three victims —including the dead teen — inside a white Cadillac about a block away, on Grow Lane.

HPD said the two surviving victims were taken to the hospital. The extent of their injuries has not been confirmed. They're ages are 30 and 31.

Investigators said footage of the incident shows two gunmen approaching the vehicle in the liquor store parking lot and then unloading their weapons. 

Police reported the shooters then left the scene, driving away in a 2019 white Chevrolet Impala SS with two black custom stripes on the hood and no front license plates.
