HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A man and a woman say they were stopped at a light when someone pulled up to their pickup truck and started shooting at them in southwest Houston.

They told police they were at the Beltway and Highway 59 around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday when the person opened fire.

The man driving was shot twice in the side.

He managed to drive to a nearby gas station for help. He was then taken by ambulance to the hospital and is expected to survive.
