VIDEO: Couple Snapchats Themselves Firing Guns At Random Houses In Houston
Snapchat Video Shows Random Drive By Shootings
Houston, TX – Houston police are looking for the suspects involved in posting Snapchat videos of themselves firing guns at random houses in Houston (video below.)
The series of videos were geotagged and timestamped, and show the couple firing the guns.
The incident was discovered when a reddit user was online early Tuesday morning, looking at nearby public snaps when he found the videos. Snapchat videos normally expire, but another reddit user was able to save them.
Chron spoke with the reddit user who told them, “I was just browsing the Snap Map feature that lets you see all the public snaps in any location. I work in that general area and was just seeing what was going on. They were dumb enough to post these publicly with a tagged location and general time stamp.”
So far, Houston PD says that they haven’t been contacted by any victims.
“We would need someone whose property was damaged or a victim of some sort or a witness or the person who took the video, to come forward and file a report,” Houston PD spokesperson Kese Smith Told Chron. “At this point in time, nobody has come forward to file a report or make a complaint.”
The reddit users identified possible suspects, then redditers started posting to the potential suspect’s Facebook page, causing the potential suspect to start deleting evidence. The identities of the suspects have not been confirmed.
As for what was hit, Click2Houston reporters followed the route and report finding a bullet hole in a business sign.
If you have any information about the crime, please contact the Houston Police Department.
