HOUSTON – A man is now charged with capital murder after a shootout at a house in Channelview Thursday.

Jose Urbina, 18, is behind bars without bond in the Harris County Jail. 

Urbina is expected to appear in court on Monday.

The charge stems from a case in which two men were found dead in two locations in Channelview. 

According to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, the shootout happened just before 3 a.m. at a drug house on Pecan Street near Market Street. A group of men burst into the home.

When deputies arrived, they said they found the body of a man who had been shot inside the home and several men were seen running from the house.

According to Gonzalez, authorities got a report of an auto-pedestrian accident about two miles away on Market Street near Dell Dale Street while they were investigating the shooting.

Deputies believe that after the gunfight, the shooters took off in a white Ford pickup truck and dumped another gunshot victim in the middle of the road and drove off.
