3 motorcyclist died after driver goes on shooting spree on I-45 in Spring, Huntsville area

According to the Huntsville Police, the death toll has increased to three following the demise of another motorcyclist who suffered injuries in a shooting incident by an unidentified gunman.

The incident occurred on Friday when the assailant fired at motorcyclists traveling in the Spring and Huntsville region.

Additionally, one more motorcycle rider sustained injuries.

Police stated that the initial shooting occurred at 11:08 a.m. on the feeder road situated in the 25000 block of I-45, where the suspect shot one motorcyclist.

Montgomery County deputies promptly reacted to the incident, and the 32-year-old victim was taken to a nearby hospital with hopes of recovery. Unfortunately, despite the medical efforts, the victim succumbed to his injuries later in the day.

As per reports, the assailant proceeded further on I-45 and Highway 19, just prior to reaching Huntsville, where three motorcyclists were shot.

Sadly, two of the motorcycle riders, aged 43 and 69, lost their lives instantly. The third victim, a 61-year-old male, sustained injuries and was transported to Herman Memorial in the Houston Medical Center by air for medical attention.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office believed that all the individuals shot were linked with outlaw motorcycle gangs.

The authorities have not disclosed any information regarding the identity of the suspect or the description of their vehicle. In light of the situation, the officials have shut down several lanes on I-45 and Hwy 19 at exit 114 to examine the area thoroughly.

Commuters have been requested to steer clear of the vicinity and utilize the exit at the Sam Houston Statue and avoid I-45 northbound until Clayton Homes.

The motive behind the shootings is yet to be determined, and multiple agencies are actively participating in the investigation.
