HOUSTON -

Police are investigating a deadly shooting at a home Saturday night.

It happened on Tolnay Street.

Early Saturday evening, two men walked into the home and shot multiple people, killing one of them, police said.

Authorities said the shooters left in a dark vehicle.

A neighbor said he heard gunfire coming from the home and saw three people who appeared to have gunshot wounds when he went outside. He also saw a mother of one of the victims show up.

"I saw young guy calling his mama on his cellphone and he said, 'Mama, I got shot,' and I could tell he's a young guy," said Sherman Broomfield.

That man was taken to Ben Taub and is expected to be OK, according to relatives.

One neighbor who arrived home to this scene said the home is known to be a hangout spot.

"There was a couple dealers in and out of the house, wouldn't be surprised if someone robbed them for their stash or something," said Franklin Jefferson.

Police said they believe this might have been a drug-related shooting.

If you have any information that could help police, call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
