Via ABC (Houston):

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Nearly two dozen people were injured, including two people who were fatally shot, when gunfire rang out at a house party in the Cypress area of northwest Harris County late last night, according to officials.

It happened on Enchanted Creek near FM 529 sometime between 11pm and midnight. The Harris County Sheriff's Office says at least 22 people were injured. Of the deceased, who we're told are a man and a woman, one was dead at the scene and the other died after being transported to Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital.

We're told injuries range from critical to minor. A total of four people were taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital and three people treated at Ben Taub. Eight to nine people were taken to Methodist West Hospital.

At this point, we don't know what led up to the shooting, but we do know there is an active search underway now for two suspects.

According to the Harris County Sheriff's Office, more than 100 people were at the party when the shooting happened. Many fled the home in a panicked rush to escape.

Not to be confused with the shooting at the Bryant Park (NYC) skating rink last night over a failed effort to steal a kid's jacket. According to the NY Post, an innocent 14-year-old bystander now is paralyzed below the waist.   **nononono*

Given all the pictures from the Houston Comical (Chronicle), I would bet this involves Katrina evacuees.  Houston has never recovered from their infestation.
