One of the juveniles has died,  Pearland Police Department Officer Chad Rogers said late Sunday.

The status of the others is unknown. Police suspect two males to be involved in the fatal shootings, Rogers said. The gunman remains at large as of 9:30 p.m. Sunday, and there was no identifying information either of the suspects.The first reports of a shooting came in at 5:34 p.m., at 1014 North Main St., outside Cole’s Antique Village and Flea Market, according to Pearland police.

CRIME: Man shot, killed in NE Harris County church parking lot, sheriff says

The shooting was not targeted toward the flea market, Rogers said. It was instead caused by a disturbance between two people.  Law enforcement officials are still investigating how many rounds were fired at the scene. Rogers said there is a “very active” investigation to find the shooter and determine a motive, which police officers do not currently know.

The shooting occurred after the flea market’s hours, which, according to its website, are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. The business is normally bustling with thousands of shoppers, Rogers said. But Sunday’s rain may have affected that, he said.

Pearland police are asking residents to stay away from the crime scene, and they currently have Texas State Highway 35 shut down from Knapp Road to the Beltway, Rogers said.  The Houston Police Department and the Brazoria County Sheriff’s Department are assisting with the investigation, Rogers said. Anyone with information on the shootings can call the Pearland Police tip line at 281-997-5828 or submit a tip via the department’s online tips page. Tips can be left anonymously.
