Sugar Land Police patrol car

SUGAR LAND (Covering Katy News) – Sugar Land police have now attempted to interview two men who were shot while sitting in their car in the Greatwood subdivision on Thursday night. 

"They were very uncooperative, probably because police found a large amount of marijuana in their car," said Sugar Land Police Department spokesman Doug Adolph.

Both men were interviewed in the hospital where they're recovering from gunshot wounds. They are expected to survive.

The men are both from Rosenberg. One is 18 and the other is 19-years-old.

"They had no connection to the Greatwood neighborhood. They don't live there," Adolph said. "We don't know why they were there. It was probably a drug deal gone bad." 

Adolph did not know exactly how much marijuana was recovered, but did indicate that it was much more than a recreational amount.

Sugar Land Police spent the night investigating the double shooting. It took place on Briar Bend Drive at about 9:30 p.m. 

It's believed that there were two shooters. They took off and police are attempting to determine their identities. Crime scene investigators were at the scene all night gathering evidence and interviewing people who live nearby. A helicopter and K-9 were also used in the search.

"We're canvassing the neighborhood looking for surveillance video," Adolph said.
