Three killed, two others injured during shooting outside night club

It happened in the parking lot outside those clubs on Westpark at Tanglewilde just after 3am. When police arrived, they found two men and a woman dead, and two others injured. A cousin of rapper Trae Tha Truth says the rapper was shot in the shoulder, but survived.

Many of the people who were at one of the clubs say they were there to see several rappers perform. One witness says the patrons had left and were in the parking lot when more than 20 gunshots were fired into the crowd.

The victims have not been identified and no arrests have been made. We're told the woman who was fatally shot was an innocent bystander. One of the injured was taken to Ben Taub Hospital and another to Southwest Memorial Hospital.

One woman with whom we spoke said the female victim involved in the shooting was her sister.

"I came up here and my sister is dead," she said. "I got out of my bed because my sister is dead."

A witness told us it happened so fast that he didn't see who the shooter or shooters were because everyone started running to take cover.

"I didn't see any shooters. It was more than one because there were too many gunshots," said witness Rick Cook.

"After I looked up, I looked a couple of feet away from me and there was that girl dying," said witness John Esquiver. "She was still alive when I saw her. When the cops got here, she was dead."

Investigators say witnesses aren't saying much about the actual shootings, but what they have been able to gather is that it may be connected either to a domestic dispute from Father's Day concerning one of the victims or a similar shooting at a club that happened back in November.

Anyone with any information is being asked to call Crime Stoppers. Tipsters will remain anonymous.
