Reports: 1 dead, 2 wounded in Texas beach shooting

SURFSIDE BEACH, Texas – One person has been killed and two others wounded in a shooting during a packed Texas Gulf Coast beach party.

Word of mouth about an unauthorized party spread on social media Saturday, drawing thousands to Surfside Beach, about 40 miles south of Galveston.

The Houston Chronicle reports that the shooting started around 9 p.m. It identified the person killed as 25-year-old Derrick Milam, quoting his stepsister Danielle Banks.

Milam was hit by a stray bullet in the neck and died on the beach.

Surfside Beach authorities didn't return calls seeking additional information Sunday. It wasn't clear if arrests were made.

Initial reports had three injured in addition to the fatality. But Surfside Police Chief Gary Phillips told The (Brazoria County) Facts newspaper that only two others sustained gunshot wounds.
