HOUSTON – Police in Houston are investigating the murders of two young Lebanese men at an apartment complex.
The shooting occurred Tuesday Evening at the Briarwood Village apartment complex.
A witness told local media that he heard eight gun shots before one man was discovered dead and a second in critical condition. Several people on the scene ran towards the gunshots immediately afterwards.
Neighbors performed CPR on the second male, but he was eventually pronounced dead on the scene as well.
The sister of the two brothers was reportedly on the scene when the incident occurred as well.
At press time police do not have a suspect or motive in place for the murders. Witnesses told authorities that they saw a vehicle take off immediately after the shootings.
While people say this neighborhood is safe, the apartment complex is not gated so it gives anyone easy access and a quick escape as well.
This marks the second incident in Texas targeting Arabs this month. Earlier this month a Muslim man was murdered in front of his home in Dallas while he was taking photographs with his wife.
