Four people were injured in a Midtown shooting early Saturday morning, according to the Houston Police Department.
The incident occurred at around 2 a.m. near Anita Street and Travis Street in the proximity of Midtown Park.
HPD officers responded to reports of several gunshots in the area.
"Just after 2.am., one of our patrol officers out here heard some gunfire," HPD Lieutenant R. Wilkins said. "When he got in the area, he saw a vehicle leave. They got behind it and stopped it real fast. Right after, we started having shooting calls he had dispatched over here."
When officers arrived upon the scene, they found four men with gunshot wounds. Two victims are in critical condition at an area hospital.
HPD officials say that the suspect is now on the run, and the motive for the shooting is unknown. During the investigation, police discovered that the driver who was pulled over initially was unrelated to the shooting.
"The one we had stopped we don't believe will be a part of the shooting investigation," Wilkins said.
The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
