HOUSTON, TX - Homicide investigators are trying to connect the dots between two different shootings and three crime scenes.

Officers say early last night, there was a drive-by shooting near Boone Rd. and Beechnut St. The targets in that shooting allegedly mounted a response and tracked the original shooters to Belle Glen Dr. where they opened fire. Police say dozens of shots were fired and at least one bullet hit a man in the head, killing him. The third scene is a strip mall parking lot where that victim ended up.

"These are all documented gang members, but the investigation is still ongoing right now. We're still trying to sort through that," said Sgt. Steven Ray Murdock.

At this point, officers don't have any suspects in custody.
