Emergency response units rushed to an incident in north Houston following reports that a man had been killed and a woman had been shot. Police from the Harris County Sheriff's Office responded to the call of a shooting at an apartment complex in the Highland Cross area of Houston in the early hours of Tuesday, July 5.



Authorities have said that a man arrived at his mother's home carrying what is believed to have been an AK-47 assault rifle.


Local residents heard several gunshots coming from the woman's apartment before witnessing her stumbling out covered in blood. The woman's son then allegedly followed her out of the apartment and continued to shoot at her while she attempted to escape.


A neighbour who was watching the incident unfold then pulled out his own gun and shot the 22-year-old man dead on the spot.


Sergeant Dennis Wolfford of the Highland County Sherrif's Office's Homicide Unit said that the woman "emerged from the house shortly after shots were heard inside the apartment. "She was bleeding from the face. "The male tracked his mother down outside and was shooting her on her lower extremities when a neighbour arrived with his firearm and shot and killed him."


Police said that at least two of the rounds that were fired inside the apartment entered another property, almost hitting a teenage girl sitting at her kitchen table.



The injured mother was rushed to a nearby hospital in a critical condition where she underwent emergency surgery. The woman is expected to survive and recover from her injuries.


Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said that he was "very grateful the good Samaritan acted swiftly under the circumstances and reacted very well."
