Houston Flea Market Shooting Likely Triggered By Road Rage
Road rage might have triggered a flea market shooting in Houston yesterday.
According to KHOU.com, yesterday's flea market shooting might have been the end result of road rage when a male exited his vehicle at the flea market in the 8700 block of Airline Drive in Houston Texas, and fired into a crowd in the flea market's parking lot.
Three people were injured in the shooting.
"Two victims were treated at the hospital, and one was treated at the scene. All are expected to make a full recovery. The sheriff's office said it could have been much worse because of the size of the crowd at the market," KHOU reported.
The shooter has not been identified at this time.
At this time, the shooting suspect has not been identified nor taken into custody, leaving Texans to wonder not only who the shooter is, but what the motive for the shooting was as well.
