HOUSTON – A fight between two women climaxed in a shooting that left one man injured on Sunday morning, officials said.

At around 12:20 a.m. Sunday, police responded to reports of a shooting in the 8000 block of Cullen Boulevard. Responding officers discovered a man with at least one gunshot wound to his torso, said Captain William McPherson with the Houston Police Department.

“We’re looking for a heavy-set black male and a dark-colored Chevy pickup,” McPherson said.
