4 injured in drive-by shooting on Washington Avenue

HOUSTON – Houston police are looking for three suspects after four people got injured in a shooting incident at a hookah lounge on Washington Avenue.

Assistant Chief Ban Tien with the Houston Police Department said the shooting was reported before 2 a.m. at 4115 Washington Avenue.

Investigators said three suspects in a black four-door car opened fire outside Azuza Hookah Lounge.

Detectives said they don’t know the motive for the shooting.

“I was informed that when the shooting occurred, there were a lot of people there, so with a high level of confidence, I know someone saw something,” Assistant Chief Ben Tien said. 

“Potentially, someone may have some videos. If you do, please come forward and let us know,” he added.

Two victims were taken to the hospital by ambulance, and two others went to the hospital by private vehicle.
