HOUSTON (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Frightening moments in Texas where two children were injured — one by shattered glass, one by flying debris — when someone fired multiple shots into an SUV during a road rage shooting.

According to Houston police the 9-year-old girl and 6-month-old boy were taken to the hospital and were stable after the evening shooting on August 22.

Investigators say a mother and father were in the vehicle along with the two children.

Police said the parents weren't hurt.

The suspect kept driving and has not yet been identified or located.
