Houston man shot while stopped at red light overnight

Police are investigating after a man was shot in southwest Houston early this morning while being stopped at a red light.

HPD says this happened at about 3 o'clock this morning near Beechnut Street and the Beltway.

A man and a woman were at a nearby traffic light when a man walked up and started shooting at their vehicle, striking the driver twice in the side.

“(They) just said a male walked up out of the dark and started shooting,” said Lt. Larry Crowson, with the Houston Police Department. "It’s a little concerning. We’re trying to verify what happened at this point.”

Police say the man was transported to a hospital and is expected to survive. They are looking to see if surveillance footage in the area might have caught something that could lead them to charges or an arrest.
