    A shooter is on the run after killing 2 people on a Houston freeway

    A shooter is on the run after killing 2 people on a Houston freeway

    (CNN)A gunman is on the run after killing two men on a Houston freeway as horrified motorists watched during the Thursday evening rush hour, authorities said.

    Police initially got a call of an accident at 5:55 p.m., but when they arrived seven minutes later, they found a shooting scene.

    The fatal incident started as a crash involving two cars headed eastbound on Interstate 10, Houston Police Assistant Chief Bobby Dobbins said Thursday evening at a news conference.


    "One of the vehicles struck the other vehicle and spun it out ... similar to a pit maneuver," he said, according to video of the news conference tweeted by Houston Police. A pit maneuver is a police tactic used to spin out a car from behind during a chase.


    Gunman fired as the car rolled downhill


    Two occupants of the vehicle that rammed the other car got out, Dobbins said. One had a weapon.

    The gunman, described by a witness as a Hispanic male, fired multiple shots at the car that had been rammed, pursuing it as it rolled down a hill, he said.

    Witnesses said the shooter is possibly in his early 20s, thin build, about 5 feet 7 inches tall and was wearing a red shirt, according to a Friday statement from the police.


    Police found narcotics in the car of the two victims, Dobbins said. The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences has not yet verified the identity of the men, who are 25 and 33 years old, police said.


    The shooter's motive is unknown. "Road rage? An accident? Narcotics? We just don't know, yet so I won't speculate," said Dobbins.


    One witness, who had a pistol in his car, fired several rounds when he saw the shooter turn toward him, Dobbins said.


    It's unclear whether the first gunman was struck by a bullet. He ran back up the hill, got into his car and sped away, Dobbins said.


    "We don't have a good description of the (shooter's) vehicle," he said. The four-door sedan is a newer model, dark colored, with unknown license plates, police stated Friday.


    Journalist describes an 'unreal scene'


    Daniel Gotera, a journalist for local station KHOU, heard the gunshots and saw people fleeing, he said.

    "Unreal scene just witnessed on I-10 in Houston," he tweeted. "A guy gets out of his car with gun just shooting in the middle of freeway. Unbelievable."


    Witnesses provided CPR to the car's occupants until authorities arrived. Houston police urge anyone who was in the area at the time to come forward.

    That part of I-10 remained closed midmorning Friday for investigation.

    CNN's Susan Scutti contributed to this report.

    Maniac with AR-15 guns down two people on Houston highway, sparking manhunt

    Maniac with AR-15 guns down two people on Houston highway, sparking manhunt

    A maniac is on the loose after he gunned down two people with an AR-15 in the middle of Houston rush-hour traffic — and then bolted in his car, sparking a manhunt, according to a new report.

    The chaos unfolded just before 6 p.m. Thursday on eastbound Interstate 10, when the shooter and another person in his sedan struck another vehicle, causing it to spin out, local outlet ABC 13 reported.


    Both suspects got out of the car — and one of them opened fire, according to the report.


    “A Hispanic male, tan shirt, holding a really big gun, shooting at another car,” a police dispatcher said.


    Assistant Chief Bobby Dobbins of the Houston Police Department told the station a witness caught a glimpse of the weapon.


    “He’s familiar with guns and he believes it was an AR-15,” the police official said.


    “Unreal scene just witnessed on I-10 in Houston, eastbound lanes at Holland, just outside the east loop,” KHOU reporter Daniel Gotera tweeted at the time. “A guy gets out of his car with gun just shooting in the middle of freeway. Unbelievable.”


    As the victims’ car rolled toward the gunman, he popped off multiple shots, killing both men in the vehicle, before taking off, authorities told ABC 13.


    One driver told authorities he fired at the shooter with a pistol that he carries for personal protection. It was unclear if the gunman was hit, according to the report.


    “This is a scary event to happen at 6 o’clock at night on a busy freeway,” Dobbins said.


    Police weren’t ruling out any possible motives.
    “Road rage? An accident? Narcotics? We don’t know yet,” the assistant chief said.

    The victims, who have yet to be identified, had a large garbage bag filled with marijuana in their car, police sources told the outlet.


    Later Thursday, authorities were checking in with local business, including hotels — urging them to be extra cautious about who walks in.


    Authorities said Friday that the shooter is a Hispanic man in his 20s, about 5-foot-7. He was last seen wearing a red shirt and took off in a newer model, dark-colored, four-door sedan.


    Houston Police also announced that they would offer up to $5,000 for any information leading to arrests of the suspects.


    Any leads can be called in to the department’s homicide division at 713-308-3600. Anonymous tips can also be called into Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713-222-TIPS.
