DEAR AMERICA: Why Are The IDENTITIES Of the Houston Shooters NOT Being Reported?

Everything about the Houston shooting this morning is being reported except for the identities of the gunmen. Do you think that they are trying to hide this? Or do you think that they simply don’t know it yet? Either way, there is currently a lot of mystery surrounding who is responsible for the hour-long attack that has left 2 dead and 6 wounded.

According to the Daily Mail:

Two men have died and six are wounded after gunmen unleashed an hours-long random attack on a residential street in Houston, police said.

Gunshots were first heard at 10.15am in west Houston, Texas. When officers arrived, the suspects turned their fire to the police and began showering bullets, seemingly at random, across the streets.

One bullet hit a gas pump, sparking a fire. Dozens of cars were hit by stray bullets, narrowly missing drivers who were passing through the quiet residential area.

At 12.30pm, a civilian was shot dead in his car as a bullet burst through the window.

Minutes later, one of the armed men shot the other suspect dead.

The surviving gunman was then shot and wounded by a SWAT team officer. He was taken to hospital.

During the shooting, two officers were shot – one in the hand and one in his body but survived thanks to his bulletproof vest, according to ABC13. Another three civilians were also shot and wounded.

Both gunmen were armed with assault rifles, believed to be AR-15s, police said.

According to ABC 13:

It started at the shop in the 13200 block of Memorial Drive at around 10:15am. When an officer responded, the suspect shot at the squad car. A photo posted on Facebook by Houston police after the shooting showed 21 bullet holes. Somehow, the officer wasn’t hurt.

“By the grace of God, he didn’t sustain any injuries,” said HPD interim chief Martha Montalvo.

More units and a SWAT team were called in and a perimeter was set up around the scene.

At a little after 11am, the suspect was shot and killed by a SWAT team member. We’re told that SWAT team member was the only law enforcement officer to fire a weapon.

“If he hadn’t taken that action that quickly, this likely would have been a lot worse than it was,” HPD spokesperson John Cannon said.

Police say a second shooter was struck by gunfire and taken to the hospital. At this point, the role of that person isn’t known. Police are interviewing him now.

The customer who was killed is a man in his 50s and a regular at the business. Police say he had just pulled up when the gunman shot him.At a little after 11am, the suspect was shot and killed by a SWAT team member.
