LAKE JACKSON — Two boys playing basketball at a church off Lake Road appear to have been targeted by a drive-by shooting Saturday afternoon, police said.

The two boys ran to the nearby Walmart store, prompting it to be placed on lockdown until police were able to determine what had happened, Lake Jackson Police Lt. Carey Lankford said. There were no shots fired inside the store.

No one was hit in the shooting, Lankford said. It is believed the incident is linked to a previous unsolved case, he said.

We have a reporter on scene and will provide more information later today at and in Sunday's print edition of The Facts.
