Thugs are now using semiautomatic rifles with 30 round magazines to murder people on the streets of Houston.

Argument at a stop and rob ended with this mans murder. He fled in his truck, but his killers followed him as he tried to escape. Apparently firing at him in is truck.

The Citgo at 7455 Little York Rd. has a 30.06 sign on the door (you can see it mid-way thru the news video). THAT must be why they followed him down the road to shoot him...... :shock: :eek6

If they had video, I would agree. The visual of this caught on video wouldn't be good. Without that, 2 dozen shell cases doesn't really mean a whole lot and I don't see it going very far. Could have been 2 or 3 guys with Thompson Contenders for all we know, but likely was AR/AK rifles or something similar.

At 52 seconds into the video, the evidence marker #11 looks like a .22lr casing.

What I saw looks like pistol caliber at the least so I guess my AR/AK idea might not be true unless it is a carbine or pistol type. They said they have video, but it didn't sound like they had video of the shooting. I guess we will see.
