Several people were injured after gun shots rang out at the Caribbean Festival.

People were dancing and celebrating Friday night for the Jouvert event on Houston's south side when four people were shot.  As the crowd dispersed two women were trampled by the fleeing crowd.

So far police are reviewing cell phone videos of the event, hoping to identify a suspect.  The four shooting victims were transported to either Ben Taub and Memorial Hermann.  One shooting victim was shot in the head and is in critical condition.

Houston police are asking anyone with information on the shooting to call the tipline at 713-222-TIPS.
