LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV) - Several people are hospitalized, after a drive by shooting at a Longview residence. It happened around noon today at a home in the 2700 block of Picket Street. Police say an argument over the phone led to one man showing up at the house with a shotgun. The suspect fired at the intended victim, only grazing him, but the shot went through the front door and hit three other people. Witnesses told officers that one of the victims, a 21 year old man, had been arguing with his uncle when the uncle produced a shotgun and fired two shots at the victim.

The shots mostly missed the 21-year-old victim, only causing him a minor wound, but struck three other family members at the residence. A 17-year-old male victim was struck in the groin area, a ten-year-old female victim was struck in the leg and a nine-year-old female victim was struck on her feet.

The shooter sped away, no one was reported with any life-threatening injuries.
