Police are investigating mysterious shooting incidents in one southwest Houston neighborhood. In the last week, two people have been shot while walking near the 8800 block of Bob White.

On May 18, a woman was walking at 7:15pm when she heard a bang and felt a sharp pain in her shoulder.

Then, on Tuesday, a man was walking in the neighborhood at about 9:30pm. He reported hearing a noise as he was shot in the back. He was taken to Ben Taub Hospital for treatment.

Police have no suspects at this time. The cases are being treated as aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Police are increasing patrols in the area and watching for anything suspicious. Anyone with information is asked to call the Houston Police Department Major Assault Unit at 713-308-3600.
