Police say seven people were shot at a house party in Houston, Texas, that formed after it was posted on Snapchat. It happened around 2 a.m. on Saturday. It’s unclear what caused the shooting, but a detective on the scene said it began as a verbal altercation.
Police say three people were found shot at the home when they arrived. Several people tried to get away from the shooting and left in a car. The suspects followed them down the East Freeway and shot inside their car and hitting three additional people.
The victims managed to pull over to get help. The seventh shooting victim showed up at the hospital. Police said that it was an “instant party” in which invitations are sent at random via Snapchat. All seven victims suffered non-life threatening injuries and are expected to survive.
Police believe that there were up to three shooters involved. They described the suspect’s vehicle as a tan, newer-model SUV, larger in size.
