The Harris County Sheriff’s Office reports that a shooting occurred in the northeastern portion of the Katy Area, near Cypress, at about 9:10 p.m. Mothers Day evening. A 24-year-old male and a 62-year-old male got into an altercation that resulted in six wounded people taken to area hospitals.
“HCSO Violent crime investigators are reviewing charges with the Harris County District Attorney’s office at this time,” said Deputy Thomas Gilliland, a spokesman for HCSO, via email.
Gilliland said witnesses had informed investigators that the 24-year-old had gotten into a confrontation with the 62-year-old in the 18900 block of Bonners Park Circle. After the confrontation the younger man returned to his home, obtained a shotgun and fired into the group of people outside the older man’s home.
Three adult females were struck by pellets, Gilliland said. Two victims whose genders and ages were unknown were also struck in the legs. Another 31-year-old victim was struck by shotgun pellets in the shoulder, he said.
“A 5-year-old juvenile girl was struck in the arm by a pellet and was also transported with non-life threating injury,” Gilliland said.
The 62-year-old was also struck by pellets but returned fire with a firearm of his own striking the younger man in the abdomen.
Those injured in the incident were all taken to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries and treated.
Correction: Six people were injured in the incident.
