Charges are pending against the gunman. 2nd story Oct. 12, 2006, 11:24AM Woman hospitalized in Channelview shooting By ANITA HASSAN Copyright 2006 Houston Chronicle An overnight shooting that authorities first thought may have been the result of road rage was actually instigated by the couple who were injured in the incident, officials said today. Danielle Burris,19, and her boyfriend were driving around the Channelview area with a BB gun that closely resembled a large handgun, shooting at people, houses, cars and signs late Wednesday night, authorities said. One man, who was shot at in his driveway, and his brother Andrew Garcia, 17, went looking for the pair, authorities said. Garcia brought along a real firearm. The men located Burris and her boyfriend in their vehicle at the intersection of Bear Bayou Drive and North Becker. When Garcia and his brother approached the vehicle, Burris' boyfriend pointed the BB gun at the men, authorities said. Garcia then fired the gun he was carrying and struck Burris behind the left ear, causing her to lose control of her 1998 Kia, authorities said. When sheriff's deputies arrived at the scene, they found Burris' Kia stuck in a nearby ditch. Burris was transported via Life Flight to the hospital. Her condition is unknown. Burris' boyfriend suffered minor cuts and scrapes that authorities said were most likely a result of the car crash. "BB guns like this are a tremendous concern for law enforcement," Lt. John Martin said. "Because if an officer had seen them shooting at people, the officer could have mistaken it for a handgun and used deadly force against them." Martin added that past incidents of aggravated robbery were committed using similar BB guns. Martin said Garcia is being charged with unlawful carrying of a weapon and further charges may be pending. The shooting is being referred to a grand jury. Martin said at there is no information on whether Burris and her boyfriend will face any charges.
