Two Arrested in Houston Party Shooting

   A 21 and an 18 year old were arrested today by Houston officials and charged in connection with that shooting at a 'birthday party gone wild' Saturday night in Cypress that left two people dead and 19 other hurt.

 

  The Harris County Sheriff identifies the suspects as Willie Young and Randy Stewart.

 

  The sheriff said the melee started when one man fired a gun into the air in 'a celebratory fashion' and the other responded by firing wildly into the crowd.

 

  Young is charged with deadly conduct, while Stewart is charged with aggravated assault.

 

  The sheriff also blamed social media for the wild scene, which had terrified party goers leaping out of second story windows and wrenching the home's garage off its track to get away from the gunfire. Sheriff Adrian Garcia said the party was advertised on Instagram and Twitter, and that resulted in more people packing the house than there was room for.

 

  Deputies said they believe that Young and Stewart are the only suspects, but they won't be certain until they have completed their interrogations of the pair.
