Deputies are searching for four gunmen they say pointed guns out of a car window and shot a driver walking down the road. Early this morning a man got out of his mustang and was shot multiple times in the back on the service road of I-45 at Airtex.

We are told four men in an unknown vehicle drove up as the man was running from his car, and opened fire.

The victim walked to a motel on the North Freeway near North Vista where he collapsed. He was brought to a hospital,  his condition is unknown.


A woman has been arrested after she drove into a train in southeast Houston, officers believe the woman was drunk and had fallen asleep while driving.

Luckily she was going so slow she didn't suffer any injuries.


The second train accident happened in northeast Houston. A man driving along Lyons road went around the railroad crossing and crashed into a train.

He suffered leg injuries and was brought to the hospital where he is expected to be okay.
