Two killed in mass shooting at Houston party

Posted: Updated:

Almost two dozen kids are recovering Saturday morning after a shooting at a house party in Houston.

Two people were killed and 22 others were hurt.

Harris County Sheriff's deputies say more than 100 people were gathered for a birthday party in a two-story home.

Someone inside started shooting and killed one person. A second gunshot victim died at a hospital, while a third remains in critical condition.

Deputies say partiers were trying to break down the garage so they could get away.

Bruno Figueroa, a witness, said that the party turned into chaos after the shooting started.

"But after the gunshots, everybody was scattering," Figueroa said. "I was watching the commotion, and there was a car that looked suspicious, and they were all trying to hide from it, but it was just chaos. It was just chaos."

Authorities say the victims range in age from 14 years old to their early 20's. Deputies are currently looking for two shooters.
