dailypeghamOne suspect was dead and a second was wounded after reports of multiple gunshots in Houston, while another person was found dead in a vehicle, police said on Sunday.

The Houston Police Department said in a Facebook post that an active shooter situation was still in effect and advised area residents to shelter in place or to stay away. The wounded suspect was transported to a nearby hospital, it said.

Earlier police said officers were responding to reports of a male firing shots in an area of west Houston just east of the Sam Houston Tollway, a major highway dissecting the Texas city.

Television news footage showed cars in the area with their windows smashed, apparently from random gunshots. It was not immediately clear if those incidents were related to the fatal shootings.
