Houston police are investigating a Snapchat video that appears to show two people filming themselves randomly shooting guns out of a moving vehicle.

The shooting apparently occurred in a flood-damaged neighborhood of the Texas city.

One homeowner joked that her home in the Fleetwood neighborhood was already damaged by flooding from Hurricane Harvey, so one more bullet wouldn't make a difference.

"The house is already destroyed, one more bullet hole won't hurt - but it's just scary," said a homeowner, who asked to only be identified as Sally. Her joke, understandably, seems to cover frayed nerves.

The wall that protects her home from Memorial Drive was lost to Harvey floodwaters.

She came to check and make sure everything is alright after seeing a news story about the shooting video.



Residents were on edge after the video went viral on social media.

According to Reddit user "HARRISCORES," three different videos on Snapchat appear to show a man shooting out of a vehicle on Memorial near Crossroads Drive and a female shooting out of a vehicle near Highway 6 between Memorial and Westheimer.

In each post, the person is allegedly seen shooting out of an open window of a moving vehicle. To those in the area, the videos are causing a lot of concern.

"It's pointless and it's reckless," Josh Endicott said. "That's about the only thing I'd have to say about it."

The Fleetwood property owners association said it is working with the Houston Police Department and is in the process of checking security cameras at the front of the subdivision to see if they captured any additional clues in the case.

The department is asking for help identifying the two suspects and seeking tips via Crime Stoppers as officers continue their investigation.
