A woman was shot dead and three lawmakers were injured in an early Sunday morning shooting outside a Houston nightclub, officials said.
Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said at a news conference that three lawmakers were doing additional work when they responded to the shooting during the battle after the club’s parking lot was closed.
The agents were expected to go to the hospital for treatment and survive, including one agent who was taken for surgery.
Troy Finner, the city’s police chief, told reporters that the woman who died was a civilian and was taken to a hospital where she was sentenced to death.
According to Finner, the shooter sought treatment for a gunshot wound at a Sugarland hospital. He was detained. Sugarland is about 20 miles southwest of Houston.
“I don’t know why he was shot into the crowd with police officers and other civilians,” Finaler said. “The investigation is still in preparation.”
The shooting comes from Sergeant Harris County in less than a day. Bruce Watson died in a crash while driving a patrol bike. Watson, a 20-year veteran of the sheriff’s office, was on his way home after leading a funeral procession involved in a clash in Pearland on Saturday, media reports said.
He later died in the hospital. Watson’s wife is a Houston police officer.
Gonzales said at a news conference that the shooting on Sunday morning was “a very scary moment following what happened last night.”
“It was a tragic night everywhere,” said the sheriff.
