One man is clinging to life and another is in serious condition after a terrifying incident in the Medical Center early today, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
Police say a man in his thirties was leaving a friend's apartment at the Dominion Park Apartments at Fredericksburg and Gus Eckhert about midnight. When he walked into the parking lot, the victim was confronted by several men.
The victim ran back into his friend's apartment and the friend locked the door. But the man pursued the victim and when they found the door was locked, they fired several shots through the front door. Both men were hit by gunfire. One of them is on life support in extremely critical condition, and the other is in serious condition. Both were shot several times.
The assailants ran into the parking lot, where police say a getaway car was waiting. They jumped into it and sped away.
Detectives think there is a lot more to this, and they are investigating. So far, no arrests, and no motive has been revealed.
