HOUSTON, Texas — Despite warnings about the dangers, some Houstonians still shot weapons into the sky as a way to ring in the new year.
HPD Chief Troy Finner says five people were arrested for illegally firing guns inside city limits.
In one instance, it hurt a 12-year-old when she was grazed on her neck by a stray bullet. The incident took place at about 12:30 a.m. Sunday on Bellfort near Fondren.
The girl was taken to a hospital and is expected to be OK.
