Two Killed In Texas Music Video Shooting

Two people have died and seven others have been injured after a group filming a music video was "ambushed" near Houston, Texas.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said authorities received a call on Friday (local time) about a drive-by shooting about 9:30 pm.

Officers responded to what Gonzalez called a residential neighbourhood, where a group of men 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 men. 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.
