HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — As police search for the suspects who killed two men with an AR-15 on the East Freeway in the middle of rush hour traffic, Jacinto City police are now checking in with local businesses like hotels, warning them to be extra cautious about who is walking in.
Families in Jacinto City are understandably on edge. The shooting Thursday night happened right in their backyard, on a major highway so many of them use daily.
As the highway shut down and rush-hour traffic came to a halt, onlookers were quick to form.
“It shocked us to hear what happened,” one bystander said. “Two people dead.”
The manhunt for the shooter and his accomplice sent the detour of traffic right down Bianca Aurioles’ street.
