BACKGROUND: 2 dead after shooting at gas station in SE Houston

According to Houston Police Department, officers responded to a shooting call at a convenience store in the 10600 block of Monroe Rd around 1:35 a.m.

They found a male victim inside the store with multiple gunshot wounds. Houston Fire Department paramedics transported the man to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Detectives learned the victims were inside a white Mercedes-Benz in the parking lot. Redmond, 18, exited the front passenger seat of a black Nissan Altima and entered the Mercedes.

HPD says surveillance video shows at least one shot was fired. One victim got out of the driver's seat of the Mercedes and ran into the convenience store.

The Nissan drove away from the scene, followed by the Mercedes, which was now stolen and being driven by Redmond, according to police.
