Former contestant on America’s Next Top Model, injured in a shooting

A former competitor on America’s Next Top Model is among four people who were injured in a shooting at a Houston apartment complex Sunday night.
TMZ reports that 32-year-old Brandy Rusher, a contestant from season four of the modeling reality show, is in critical condition after the shooting which also resulted in the deaths of two men. Police continue to search for the suspects. They say the gunmen drove up to the apartment complex and then opened fire using a high-powered rifle.

Law enforcement officials say the shooting happened after the victims got into an argument with a resident at the Haverstock Hill apartments around 6:30pm.

Three men arrived in a four-door white car and two of them got out and started arguing with the victims. Then one of the men went and got a semi-automatic rifle from the trunk of the car and started firing 15 to 18 shots at the victims, before fleeing the scene.
One man was pronounced dead at the scene, while another died later at the hospital.

Rusher competed on the fourth season of the modeling reality show in 2005

In addition to Rusher, another woman and two men were injured. Officials said the four injured were in critical but stable condition and that one of the women had been shot in the lower leg.
Three of the victims are reportedly from the same family.
So far, just one of the victims, 33-year-old Christopher Beatty, has been officially identified.
