HOUSTON -

A man charged in a shooting at a northeast Houston club that left three people dead has been arrested.

Harold "Scooby" Brown was arrested Friday on charges of capital murder.

The shooting happened on Sept. 2 outside Club I.C.U in the 9500 block of Mesa Road.

According to Houston police, two groups of people had some sort of altercation inside the club near closing time. The argument spilled outside into the parking lot. That's when police said Brown, who was in one of the groups, pulled out a gun and started shooting.

"A male came out with a gun, shot once in the air, people started running and fleeing. Ultimately, several more gunshots were discharged," said HPD Homicide Investigator Richard Bolton.

Police said Gilbert Kibble, 39, and Curtis Steward, 22, were killed in the parking lot, and Felipe Castillo, 26, died a short time later at a hospital. HPD said three female victims were also taken to hospitals with injuries that were not life-threatening.

According to police, Steward and Kibble were trying to help break up the fight outside when they were shot and killed.
