The person who shot a man in southeast Houston is on the run.

Neighbors say they heard a gunshot and then discovered the man in the street on Hickok and Segrest around 11 p.m. Thursday.

According to investigators the victim was with one or two other people in a car parked at a dead end street when they started arguing.

Moments later someone pulled out a gun and shot the man.

The victim was taken to Ben Taub Hospital in serious but stable condition.

The gunman fled the scene, as did the other people who were there at the time.
