From ABC 13:
At around 6:30 this morning, HFD scanners reported a suspect was at a strip center firing upon vehicles.
The suspect was described as a black male with a revolver. “We received a call at 6:29 that we had a shooting at the Petco store…the first units were directed to the parking lot where the shooting was still active,” HFD’s Jay Evans says.
“We now have approximately 20 EMS personnel vehicles on scene. We do not know, we do not have a count at this time as to how many people have been shot, but all of the people will be directed to local hospitals in the area that are going to be victims.”
Emergency vehicles flooded the area around the strip center bordered by Weslayan, Bissonnet and Law Street.
Officers concentrated much of their focus during the shooting on an apartment complex on nearby Law Street, located behind the strip center.
HFD officials reported on radio the suspect was seen behind some trees as he opened fire on vehicles in the area.
Our Eyewitness News crew saw firefighters and officers running up and down the street as the gunfire continued.
From the air, Don Armstrong reported seeing bodies on the ground as officers worked to bring the active shooter situation to an end.UPDATE -

I would NOT recommend this firm to anyone. My initial interview was with Desai. I was asked to pay a $1,500 retainer, which I paid under the impression that things were going to be taken care of. The end result was that nothing could be done to help me. I don't understand why I was charged so much money for them to simply tell me, Sorry, we can't help you.
Besides that, Nathan Desai acted very unprofessional by asking me (a paying client) out for dinner and drinks. I understand that attorneys cannot guarantee outcomes or results, but I was very offended by the lack of professionalism.
I asked for an itemized printout showing exactly what I was charged for, and they e-mailed me and charged me just under $200 for giving me an itemized.
