HUMBLE, Texas (KTRK) -- An investigation is underway after two people were injured during a drive-by shooting at a home in Humble on Monday night, deputies say.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office said it received a call at about 5:17 p.m. about a shooting in the 9400 block of Shaded Pines Drive.

A group of people were hanging out in the garage when multiple shots were fired, according to Capt. Sandi Chapa.

A vehicle drove by with an unknown amount of suspects and began shooting at the home, striking a 15-year-old girl and a man, believed to be in his 20s.

Investigators believe this was a targeted shooting but have not disclosed a potential motive.

Chapa said other homes in the area weren't damaged, and the shots were aimed directly at the house.

The 15-year-old girl was transported to the hospital in an unknown condition to undergo surgery, according to HCSO.

Chapa said the man was also transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Authorities have not given a description of the suspect(s) or a suspected vehicle.
