A male shooting victim was reportedly found nearby and taken to a private medical facility. Both the male and female victims who did not die are expected to survive.

“We don’t have any information about motive at this time. It could be road rage,” HPD Assistant Chief Wyatt Martin told reporters Saturday, according to FOX 3. “It could have been robbery. We just don’t know, and we don’t have enough information at this time to make a determination.”

No suspects have been identified by HPD as witnesses are being interviewed.
