Houston rapper among the wounded in club shooting

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.
