HOUSTON — The investigation into a shooting outside a local nightclub, during which a man was reportedly shot in the buttocks, has revealed a different truth about what happened Friday morning.
Houston police first reported a man was shot in the buttocks by his girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend while leaving a nightclub. According to initial reports, the couple and suspect got into an argument and the ex-boyfriend threatened to shoot the victim. While the couple was driving away from the club, the ex-boyfriend fired multiple shots at the vehicle and hit the woman’s boyfriend.
However, according to new findings sent out by the Houston Police Department Friday afternoon, those details are not entirely accurate.
The latest report says two women were walking out of the nightclub around 2:25 a.m. when their ex-boyfriends started harassing them. When the women got into their car, detectives said the ex-boyfriends started following them in another vehicle.
While the women were driving along 610 West Loop, police said one of the ex-boyfriends pulled out a gun and fired at least four times at the victims’ car. One of the women — who was riding in the passenger’s seat — was shot one time.
Shortly afterwards, officers responded to reports of a shooting victim along 610 South Loop near S. Post Oak Boulevard at 2:25 a.m.
Investigators said the injured woman, 26, was taken to Ben Taub Hospital in stable condition. The new report did not state the victim was shot specifically in the buttocks, which was a detail shared earlier in the investigation.
Neither ex-boyfriend has been charged at this time, however police are searching for the two men who were driving a gold, or champagne-colored, Infiniti SUV.
Anyone with information on their whereabouts is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
