The third occupant of the vehicle, identified as Frankie Guthrie, 35, of Houston, ran from police, but was apprehended shortly after, police said.

 

The two occupants of the Ford Fusion were taken to the hospital, with the driver released but the passenger was still being Sunday, authorities said. The victim from the initial disturbance was taken to the hospital with chest pain, police said.
