HOUSTON -

A man was shot in the stairwell of a southeast Houston apartment complex Saturday, police said.

According to investigators the shooting happened at around 7 p.m. at Norma's Plaza apartment complex in the 7500 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

Police have not identified the victim, but they say he was shot once in the head.

Investigators think one to two suspects were involved and fled the scene in a silver Chevy Malibu.

"It's really scary," resident Starr Johnson said. "You just mind your business, say your prayers, go home. It's ridiculous over here. Every two or three days something's happened. It's really ridiculous."
