Houston police are investigating an area residential shooting that put one man in the hospital last week.
The Houston Police Department said officers responded to a shooting call at 1018 Ellington St. near Acres Homes just before midnight Sept. 18 to find the victim, 22-year-old Brandon Shields, on the ground with a gunshot wound to the chest.
Shields was transported to an area hospital in stable condition, according to HPD.
Citing witnesses, police said Shields was sitting outside in front of the residence when someone drove up in a small, silver SUV and fired several shots at Shields before fleeing the scene.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact HPD’s Major Assaults & Family Violence division at 713-308-8800 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477.
