A 5-year-old boy was injured in what HPD calls a random shooting in Rice Military

Houston, Texas (KTRK) – A mother and her 5-year-old son were near CVS in Rice Military when police say someone in another car started randomly shooting into their vehicle.

The mother made it to Rose Street, which is about a quarter mile from where investigators say the shooting began on Sunday.

A video shows the rear seat window being shot. The little boy was sitting there in his car seat, fortunately he wasn’t hit by a bullet but was hit by the broken glass, according to police.

Paramedics treated him and he is expected to be fine.

No arrests have been made, and police have no real description of the shooter other than the fact that they were in a red Honda.

The head of Rice’s military group said he had been in that area about 20 minutes before the shooting.

“Something like that is very unsettling to me. Obviously no neighborhood is immune to something like this, a random event, a random event like this happening, but that only interests me as a guy who’s watching, the guy who’s trying to be in,” said Mark Fairchild.

Lieutenant J.P. Horelica of the Houston Police Department calls this incident strange upon strange.

If you live in the area, you will be asked to check your camera to see if you took any video of the incident or if you suspect one.
