Four shot during family dispute  

Shortly after 9:00pm, Sunday evening August 13th, 2017 La Porte Police Department (LPPD) Communications Center received a call for gunshots being fired in the 3200 block of Tara Place, La Porte Texas. The City of La Porte Police, Fire and Emergency Medical Services responded to the scene.

Upon arrival first responders found three persons with gunshot wounds. A 50 year old female, 26 year old male and a 14 year old male were transported by La Porte EMS via ambulance to area hospitals for their injuries. The two adults were treated and released. The teenager underwent surgery and remains in the hospital.  All of the victims are related, mother and sons.   

The fourth person involved in the shooting, a 50 year old male, fled the scene in a white Toyota Tundra, four door pickup truck before the police arrived.  A short time later the 50 year old male was located by the Pasadena Police Department after having been involved in a hit and run accident. Pasadena Police contacted LPPD Detectives who confirmed that the male was in fact involved in the La Porte shooting. The male was transported to the hospital where he is being treated for his injuries.  Initial indications are that the male apprehended by the Pasadena Police Department was involved in a relationship with the 50 year old female shooting victim and the shooting was the result of a domestic dispute. 

This is an ongoing investigation, should anyone have information on this case they are asked to contact the LPPD Criminal Investigations Division at 281-842-3173.
