Michael Barrientos, a football player at Alief Hastings, was killed Sunday night.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Police are trying to find the person responsible for the shooting that killed two people and injured a 16-year-old in southwest Houston Sunday night.

Authorities say that around 10:30 p.m. a car pulled up in the 11900 Huntington Glen and a man got out and started firing shots at a second man who was inside another car.

Police identified one of the victims as former Alief Hastings High School football player Michael Barrientos. They believe his SUV was also stolen after the shooting.

Police found Barrientos' body in the middle of the street.

The second man, who was shot inside the car, crashed into a brick wall. He also died.

Officials tell ABC13 a 16-year-old innocent bystander was shot in the leg while walking down the road.

He was taken to the hospital.

Police do not have a description of the suspect at this time.

Last week, a Marshall High School football player was fatally shot allegedly by his uncle during an argument.
