One person was killed and 12 others were injured in two separate nightclub shootings in Texas.
Around 1:30 a.m. Saturday, Dallas police received a call reporting a shooting inside Pryme Night Club. Eight people were found shot, according to a police press release.
The victims were taken to local hospitals where one, a woman, was pronounced dead. Police identified her as Daisy Navarrete, 21. The others are said to be either stable or critical.
Police said that the suspect had an argument with another person at the club. When a witness tried to intervene, the suspect began shooting.
The suspect fled the scene “in an unknown direction,” according to authorities. Dallas police released a photo of the suspect and asked that anyone with information contact the department.
Shortly after the Dallas incident, police in Houston said officers responded to a shooting at a club on North Freeway.
The police department said in a tweet just before 4:15 a.m. that five people were injured following a “disturbance” at the nightclub. The victims were all hospitalized.
Houston police did not immediately return a phone call on Saturday.
According to NBC affiliate KPRC-TV in Houston, one man suffered a gunshot wound to the neck and is listed in critical condition. The other victims, including a man shot in the leg, are stable.
Preliminary information suggests that there was an argument inside the club and a suspect with a pistol began firing, the outlet reported.
