The Harris County Sheriff's Department is still investigating a weekend shooting that left several people injured following their prom.

A possible gang-related incident, according to a report from Channel 2, left at least four teens injured after a shooting early Saturday morning at a post-prom party, according to the sheriff's department.

The party, according to reports, drew a couple hundred high schoolers to a horse barn in the 1400 block of Gears Road in northwest Harris County.
