Police responded to a shooting in southeast Houston.

Neighbors told Eyewitness News the gunfire that rang out sounded like firecrackers, but this situation certainly was more serious than leftover fireworks.

"I actually started crying. This is heartbreaking," a woman said at the scene.

She says her relative just lost a baby two months ago, and hopes her family will be spared more heartache as they wait to hear the identity of the victim.

Police said they have not been able to positively identify the victim yet, so relatives will have to wait to hear that name as they continue their investigation.

Another unknown is the question of why this drive-by shooting happened, another mystery officers hope to answer.
