HOUSTON -

A man was shot in the side after a confrontation at a northeast Houston apartment complex.

Just after 2 a.m. Monday, Houston police were called to the Northline Motel on Airline Drive and Tidwell Road.

The woman said her ex-boyfriend kept calling the room. He eventually showed up at the motel.  After she opened the door to tell him to leave, the woman said he refused to let her close the door.

The woman's current boyfriend came over to help get the door closed. When the ex-boyfriend continued to resist, the current boyfriend got a gun and shot ex-boyfriend in the side. 

The ex-boyfriend was transported to the hospital.  He is expected to survive.

The couple was taken in for questioning.
