Houston police said it started when five people in the parking lot got into an argument with two men in a gold or brown sedan. The men said they would come back.

Houston police Commander David Angelow said that 10 to 15 minutes later, the men return and open fire in the parking lot “completely unprovoked,” according to ABC 13

Now, the Harris County District Attorney’s Office states police arrested 22-year-old Roger Salazar and charged him with capital murder. They believe he “intentionally and knowingly” caused the deaths of Jessica and Luis Ruiz, the siblings, with a firearm.

The third shooting victim was 55-year-old Josafat Ocampo Mesa, a relative of the Ruiz siblings. A fourth person, an 18-year-old woman, was also shot and rushed to the hospital and survived.

The fifth person on the scene was not injured in the shooting.

Authorities consider the incident a mass shooting as it has three or more victims.

A GoFundMe page was set up by Luis’ and Jessica’s sister to help pay for their funeral expenses. The fundraiser states, “they took care of one another” and were “always together.”
