Police believe a disturbance at a local pool hall led to a drive-by shooting on the Southwest Freeway. Authorities say two people had just left that pool hall on Fondren shortly after a large fight broke out. Just as the they got on Highway 59, police say a Lincoln Navigator pulled up alongside them, and someone inside started shooting.

A woman sitting in the passenger's seat was hit in the chest. It's not believed the man driving was shot. The couple was able to pull off to a gas station at the Southwest Freeway near Westpark and call police.

The woman's condition is unknown. The gunmen got away.

If you know anything about the case, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
