HOUSTON (AP) - Two brothers were fatally shot and a relative wounded in a shooting at a used car dealership in Houston, police said.

A man was taken into custody after the shootings on late Thursday morning at Immaculate Auto Sales, but had not been charged.

A mechanic found the bodies of brothers Jesse and Tony Contreras, co-owners the dealership, inside an office with gunshot wounds to the head. Tony Contreras’ 22-year-old son, also shot in the head, was rushed to the hospital.

Houston Police Sgt. Brian Harris said they don’t have a motive yet, but believe the men were targeted.

“We’re looking at all angles, from robbery to a disgruntled customer,” Harris said. “We’re just at the beginning stages of looking at the lives of our victims.”

The dealership, which handles repossessions and late payments, had received many threats due to nature of its business, police said.
