    According to Houston police, it started as a shooting in progress call at 13200 Memorial Drive at around 10:15am. When an officer arrived, at least one of the suspects began firing. More units and a SWAT team were called in and set up a perimeter around the scene.

    At some point, one of the suspects was shot and killed, apparently by the other suspect.

    That other suspect was then shot by a SWAT team. The second suspect was taken to the hospital in unknown condition.

    During the shooting, one citizen was shot and killed and two Precinct 5 deputy constables were also shot. One of the deputy constables was saved by his vest. The other was shot in the hand and is expected to be OK.

    Three other citizens were wounded in the shootout. At this point, we don't know any of their conditions.

    shots fired at the police helicopter as well. This is actually a really nice area and not an area I would think of when it comes to shoot outs. It will be interesting to find out the motive.

    HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A terrifying shootout in west Houston left two people dead and six more injured. One of those deceased is a suspect and the other is a citizen.
    According to HPD, one of the suspects had a high-powered weapon, believed to be an AR-15. They say the suspect even fired at a police helicopter. HPD spokesperson John Cannon says the chopper was hit at least five times.

    Totally whack.

    The shooting occurred at Memorial Drive Tire & Auto Center. A fire at a gas station across the street may have started when a bullet from the fire exchanged between the shooters and police struck a gas pump, Montalvo said.

    Armed with AR-15s, the shooters left five bullet holes in a police helicopter circling over the active shooting scene.
    Across the street, Bill Schwartz witnessed some of the shootout first hand. He and his wife passed the tire center on their way home from church at 10:10 a.m. They chatted about how they might get their car detailed there soon.

    Schwartz, 62, said they saw a shirtless man with tattoos, who he later realized was one of the gunmen. Another man had his hands up.

    Houston PD Facebook page.

    They've posted photos of the primary responding officer's car.

    Perps were clearly shooting to kill.

    One suspect was killed by a Swat team member. Another man, potentially a suspect, was shot and is in critical condition, police said.

    In a second media briefing later in the afternoon, John Cannon, a police spokesman, said officers were trying to establish whether the criticially injured man had any connection to the dead gunman, who appeared to be the primary shooter – or whether he was a passerby who happened to be armed and became involved in the chaotic incident.

    A civilian victim died after being shot in the head by a suspect while in a vehicle, Martha Montalvo, the city’s interim police chief, told reporters earlier. The man was found in the parking lot of the repair shop.

    One suspect was killed, though it was not yet clear who shot him, and a second man with a gun was wounded after a SWAT team responded, police said.
    But police said they still weren't clear on what happened, and whether the shooting of police and civilians was carried out by one or both of the armed men.

    "The second male who was armed, we're trying to figure out what his role in this was. Was he a suspect or someone who just happened to be armed with a gun," Houston Police Department spokesman John Cannon said. "Until further notice we'll say suspect because he had a gun, OK, but what his role was we don't know."

    The man was conscious and talking to investigators, but police said they would not reveal what he told them until they could determine whether his story was true.
