Houston Police Department officers respond to a shooting at a gas staion and restaurants combination at Imperial Valley Drive and North Sam Houston Parkway on Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2019, in Houston.
A man who spotted two other men catcalling his girlfriend pulled a gun and opened fire outside a north Houston gas station Wednesday morning, police say.
The woman was standing outside the Chevron station at Imperial Valley Drive and North Sam Houston Beltway when two men started to whistle at and catcall her around 11 a.m., according to Houston police officers on scene. A man believed to be the woman’s boyfriend saw the two men and started to argue with them, police said.
At some point, the boyfriend pulled out a gun from his car and opened fire, striking both men in their legs, officers said. They were taken to a nearby hospital, where they are expected to survive.
The shooter and the woman fled in a black Dodge Charger, police said.
