Two killed, seven injured in music video "ambush"

Police investigate Houston shooting

Houston – Two people were killed and seven others were injured Friday night when a group filming a music video was "ambushed" near Houston, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said Saturday.

The sheriff said earlier that authorities received a call Friday about a drive-by shooting around 9:30 p.m. Officers responded to what Gonzalez characterized as a residential neighborhood, where a group of males had been filming a music video in an office parking lot. 

"There were other vehicles that were staged there and we believe they were filming some type of music video when, all of a sudden, basically they were ambushed, we believed by individuals in cars and/or foot that fired shots into the parking lot area," Gonzalez told reporters. 

It's unclear how many people opened fire. Gonzalez described the victims as Hispanic males. Most of them were in their early 20s.  

More victims may have left the scene seeking medical help, according to the sheriff's office, CBS affiliate KHOU reports.

The shooting scene stretched several blocks, the sheriff said, and it wasn't immediately clear what led to the shooting.
