4 Shot, 2 Killed, At Home Northeast Of Houston

Harris County authorities say four men have been shot and two of them are dead after a masked gunman opened fire at a home northeast of Houston.

Sheriff's spokesman Thomas Gilliland says the gunman forced himself inside the home Thursday evening and began firing.

One of the victims died at the scene and the second died later at a hospital.  The two other men are hospitalized in critical condition.

Their names have not been disclosed. Gilliland says the relationship of the victims isn't known.

Other details are not clear.

The gunman, who drove off in a car, is described as wearing dark clothing, including a mask, a hooded sweatshirt and gloves.
