HOUSTON, TX - Houston Police are looking for the gunman who tailed a car full of women, then shot two of them. Officers got the call around 2 a.m. Monday, responding to a car on the East Freeway near Federal. They found three women, who of whom had been shot.

The victims told police that earlier in the night, they'd tried to buy cocaine at a nearby club. When they got suspicious of the man offering the drugs, they drove off, but soon noticed someone was following them. The driver pulled over on the freeway and that's when the man walked up to the car, firing several shots inside before driving away.

The shooting victims were hit in the leg and arm. They were taken to a hospital and are expected to survive.
