HOUSTON (AP) - A publicist says a rapper was one of at least two men wounded in gunfire that left three people dead at a parking lot outside a southwest Houston strip mall.

A spokeswoman for Trae Tha Truth, whose real name is Frazier Thompson III, says he was shot in the shoulder early Wednesday after performing at a club nearby. Nancy Byron says she does not believe Thompson was targeted.

Police say shots were fired outside Score’s Cabaret soon after 3 a.m. Wednesday as hundreds of people were in the parking lot. Police say two men and a woman died at the scene, while Thompson and another man were taken to hospitals. Hospital spokeswoman Lynne Sullivant says the rapper has been treated and released.

No arrests have been made.
