According to Lieutenant Curt Landrum of the Huntsville Police Department there have been no arrests but the suspects are believed to be driving a blue Volkswagon four door vehicle, possibly a Passat, with a spare donut tire and wheel.

The victim who was shot was Lifeflighted to Hermann Memorial Hospital in Houston and is in stable condition. The other injured victims were treated and released at Huntsville Memorial Hospital, according to Landrum.

According to Landrum three or four suspects, at least one with a handgun, allegedly entered a residence and ordered the occupants to the ground.

The suspects went through the residence looking through cabinets and drawers in an apparent attempt to locate items to steal, Landrum stated in a press release.

The suspects allegedly shot one of the residents in the right upper leg area, while other occupants were struck with either fists or possibly a gun causing moderate injuries, according to Landrum.
