Houston Police Department Chief Troy Finner said in a news conference that officers responded to a call for service for a drive-by shooting in progress.
Finner said the victim, who has not yet been identified, but is said to be in his mid 20s, was driving a white Mercedes vehicle northbound when a black newer model Subaru with dark windows began to fire at the Mercedes.
Authorities believe the suspects, who were dressed in all black with hoodies and shades on, fired multiple shots before fleeing the scene either westbound or eastbound on San Felipe.
