Houston police are trying to sort out the details of a massive shootout Wednesday afternoon in southwest Houston.

Dozens of shots were fired between two cars driving along Dairy Ashford near Bellaire. Witnesses tell us at around 2pm they heard anywhere from 20 to 50 gunshots. They say they saw someone in a car shooting at a group of people in another car. And that second car reportedly returned fire.

The mother of one shooting victim says her son, 21-year-old Denzel Redman, was shot in the arm.

"He's in the hospital. He blocked them from shooting him in his face. But I was told they tried to kill him," she said.

Police are still investigating and searching for the suspects.

Witnesses tell us after the shooting they saw a man wearing a white t-shirt and only one shoe running down the street.

Police have not been able to confirm any other details.
