Car barrels into crowd at Houston homicide scene

HOUSTON (CNN/KTRK/KHOU) — A car barrels into a crowd of people near a homicide scene in Southeast Houston.

News crews already on the scene caught it on video, as the car goes right through the crowd and people dive out of the way. It’s not clear if anybody was hurt.

After the driver turns back around and gets back onto the road, he gets out of the car, and a police officer wrestles him to the ground.

Police then swarm on him to cuff him and take him into custody.

Police say a group of men were fighting when a man shot two people, killing one of them. The shooter then ran off.

Witnesses at the scene say the man who drove through the crowd of people is the suspected gunman’s father.
