Witnesses advised a silver vehicle with an unknown number of passengers drove down the 4300 block of Fonville firing numerous rounds toward the house.

A 26-year-old Beaumont man was struck by one of the rounds and taken to the hospital by private vehicle with non life-threatening injuries.

Four of the neighboring houses were hit by bullets during the shooting. Someone inside the home that was being shot at returned fire toward the silver vehicle and struck houses across the street.
