[Ed. – The high cost of ‘art.’]
Nine people were shot and two people died Friday night in what police are calling an “ambush” during the filming of a music video in north Harris County, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.
A group of Hispanic men in their 20s was apparently filming a music video around 9:30 p.m. in a warehouse complex in the 500 block of Smart Street when another group began firing from a car, authorities said.
“There were other vehicles that were staged there and we believe they were filming some type of music video when, all of a sudden, basically they were ambushed, we believed by individuals in cars and/or foot that fired shots into the parking lot area,” Gonzalez said in a media briefing.
Gonzalez added some of the wounded are being treated for “very serious injuries.”
