Third Attack in Last Ten Days: Shooter wounds Nine in Houston

Nine people were shot and wounded in Houston when a shooter opened fire at a Strip Mall early Monday morning.

Strip Mall in Houston

Police say they started receiving calls around 6:30 a.m.; when they arrived at the scene, the shooter began firing at law enforcement. Houston Police Chief Martha Montalvo says police returned fire, killing the suspect who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Numerous weapons were found in a vehicle that police believe is linked to the shooter. SWAT teams are still at the strip mall, and Montalvo said the scene is still very active. He told reporters their bomb squad is searching the vehicle for explosives.

Witnesses say the shooter fired dozens of shots into passing vehicles, in an attack that lasted for about 20 minutes. Of the nine wounded, one is in critical condition, another is in serious condition, and three people were treated and released, Montalvo said.

Eduardo Andrade, 42, told the Houston Chronicle, “As I was driving by Law Street I suddenly heard a big explosion. I covered myself, accelerated and tried to get out of there. I did not know if someone was following me or trying to shoot me.” He also said, “It’s so random, think of it, if I was driving a little faster or a little slower, the bullet would have had a different trajectory.”

The shooting comes just days after a Muslim terrorist, who the media first described as a Hispanic male, opened fire in a Washington mall killing five people. On September 17, another Islamic terrorist walked into a mall in Minnesota, stabbing ten people before an off-duty officer who was conceal carrying his gun shot and killed the terrorist piece of crap.

Police have not commented on whether this latest shooting was terror related, but Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner said the investigation was still active. “It’s very, very early. We want to make sure there is no other gunman. We are checking every angle; I can assure you,” Turner told the TV station.

    This shooting thing is becoming so popular maybe there ought to be a reality TV Show made out of it. How cool would that be!!

    Or, just send these people back to the hell holes they came from; and hang anybody whose behind importing enemies into the homeland. It is TREASON ! You damn deluded mentally challenged bleeding hearts. The neoCon communists and the liberal communists want to destroy America. They’re almost to the finish line. Sand dwellers attacking us domestically, a Nuclear war, and the Banksters setting us up for a financial collapse; TRAITORS, good for nothing SOBs.
