2 children wounded, 1 critically, in Houston drive-by attack

Posted: Updated:

HOUSTON (AP) - Two children have been wounded, one critically, in what police believe was a targeted drive-by shooting in Southeast Texas.   

Houston police say an 8-year-old boy suffered a gunshot wound to the head and his 5-year-old sister was wounded in the leg. Executive Assistant Police Chief Troy Finner says the siblings were sitting in their mother's car Thursday evening when someone drove by and opened fire on the vehicle. The mother had stepped into a nail salon across the street to check on the wait time before the shooting occurred.   

Finner says an 11-year-old also in the car was not wounded.   

Finner says investigators had no immediate leads as to the identity of the shooter and asked the public for any information.
