HOUSTON (AP) Two people have died after gunfire at a Houston-area apartment and investigators are trying to determine if anyone else was involved in the killings.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office says deputies late Saturday afternoon responded to reports of shots fired at an apartment complex.

Authorities say one person was dead at the scene. The other person was transported to a hospital and pronounced dead.

Sgt. Greg Pinkins says the door to the unit was open when deputies arrives. Pinkins says investigators are trying to determine if a third person was involved because a vehicle was seen leaving the apartment complex shorting after the shooting.

Names of the victims and further details on them weren't immediately released.
