Investigation underway into shooting death of Baytown man
A man is dead after police said his teenage friend shot him.
It happened around 3 a.m. Wednesday in the 700 block of Kilgore Road in Baytown.
Police said they were called to investigate a shooting after the victim’s sister called 911 to report that her brother had been shot.
Officials said the victim’s sister had received a phone call from her brother, 22-year-old Dustin Head, telling her to come pick her up.
When she arrived, she found Head lying in the road bleeding.
Upon investigating, officers learned that Head had been at a friend’s house where an argument had taken place.
According to police, the argument between Head and17-year-old Haley Korocy eventually turned physical. Head left the house and called his sister to pick him up.
Authorities said while Head was waiting outside, Korocy got a rifle from inside her home and fired one shot.
Head was shot in the back. He was later transported to Herman Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Korocy was taken into custody to be interviewed by Baytown police investigators.
No charges have been filed at this time.
