Police are piecing together details of a shooting that took place in east Houston Wednesday evening. According to reports, Houston police found the shooting victim on the ground just after 11:00 P.M. at the Rollingwood Apartments on Maxey near Church. Additional reports indicate that children from the neighborhood watched as the victim tumbled down one of the stairwells of the complex from his gun shot wounds and then and died next to a playground located near the court yard of the apartment homes. The victim was taken to Ben Taub Hospital but could not be revived.
Although Houston police were able to pinpoint the exact apartment where the shooting happened, they do not have many other details. As police noticed that there was someone else’s blood in the apartment where the man was shot they are investigating the possibility of a second shooting victim somewhere. Anyone with any information about the shooting is asked to call the Houston Police Department.
