Police taped off a portion of a parking lot behind Sharpstown Mall on Thursday, Dec. 4, 2008, in Houston. Two men were expected to survive after having been shot Thursday in a drug-related shootout at an apartment complex across the street from a mall, police said. The shooting was initially reported as an attempted carjacking in the mall's parking lot. But investigators later determined the two unidentified men were injured during a gun battle involving up to five people inside an apartment at a complex across the street from Sharpstown Mall in southwest Houston, said Houston Police Capt. Bruce Williams. (AP Photo/Houston Chronicle, Sharon Steinmann )
