HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- A woman was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after a 6-year-old boy was shot multiple times in northeast Harris County, authorities said.
Thursday's scene unfolded in the 6100 block of Cypresswood Green Drive, according to Harris County Precinct 4 Constable's Office.
Preliminary information from authorities is that a group of young girls had an altercation at a school. Once school was over, the groups regathered in order to "finish the altercation," authorities said.
A fight re-ensued between the groups, and at some point, a suspect came out of a home and fired a warning shot into the air. When the girls began getting into a car, the suspect started firing multiple shots at the vehicle, injuring a 6-year-old boy. Authorities said he was shot in the arm and thigh, but he was treated at a hospital.
The suspect, who was only described as a Black woman, was taken into custody, and a firearm was located and recovered at the scene.
