Authorities say a woman was killed and two others were injured after someone in another vehicle opened fire in north Houston. It happened around 2:30am close to a Raceway gas station off West Mount Houston near the North Freeway. A man and two women in a pickup truck pulled into the parking lot and the clerk could see they needed help. That clerk called 911.

"All three victims were at a club," said Greg Pinkins with the Harris County Sheriff's Office. "They were on their way home when a vehicle pulled beside the vehicle they were riding in and shots rang out."

One woman died at the scene. The man driving and the other female passenger were taken to Ben Taub Hospital and are expected to survive. They're been talking to authorities about the shooting.

Deputies did have West Mount Houston closed as part of the scene, but it has since reopened.

Surveillance cameras at the Raceway gas station are being reviewed by investigators. Authorities are looking for a black Chevy 4-door pickup truck. Anyone with any information is asked to call authorities.
