The three suspects fled the vehicle, with witnesses warning police that they were armed, police said.

After a short foot pursuit, the passenger of the vehicle, identified as Mario Valdez, 32, of La Marque, who also had a weapon in his possession, was taken into custody, police said.

 

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.
