Shooting at Baytown vigil leaves one dead
One person is dead, and 13 others are injured after a shooting in Baytown on Sunday night. Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said someone drove up on a crowd of people gathered for a vigil for recent murder victim before opening fire.
Many of the injured drove themselves to Houston Methodist Baytown Hospital. From there, a fight broke out after so many people tried to make their way inside. Of the 13 injured, three were flown to Memorial Hermann Hospital at the Texas Medical Center by helicopter.
Eyewitnesses tell ABC13 that two of the people shot were a pastor and his wife, who were at the vigil to pray for the family.
