SUNNYVALE (CBSNewsTexas) - A woman is dead, another man injured along with three children after a shooting in Sunnyvale. 

Interim Chief of police Bill Vegas said two suspects followed the victim's car to an apartment complex, exited their car in the parking lot and started shooting. The woman who was hit by gunfire, got out of her car and ran into her apartment, according to Vegas. She was pronounced deceased at the scene. 

The children are between the ages of 8 to 10. None of them suffered life threatening injuries, according to Vegas. 

"I've been in the business 33 years, and it's never an easy scene to walk up on where five people have been shot... three children is pretty horrific," said Vegas.

Police are working to gather surveillance video to help in identifying the suspects, a man and a woman possible driving a a black Toyota Camry. 

"I would not say that there is not a threat to the public. We don't know where they are. We do know that they are armed. We do know that they are capable of shooting, so there is a definite threat," shared Vegas. 

Investigators are also working to determine what led to the shooting.
