Charges have been filed against a man accused of fatally shooting one man and wounding another outside an after-hours club in southwest Houston.

Bradley Garrett, 36, is charged with murder.

The shooting happened at the H2O night club in the 9400 block of Country Creek on June 22.

Police said the victims, Scott Clark, 44, and Edward Woodrow, 30, were seen going inside and outside the club several times.

As the club was closing around 7:40 a.m., both men attempted to return, but club security advised them to leave.

The situation began to escalate, and Woodrow began taking video with his cellphone.

At that time, Garrett, accompanying the club security guard, took the phone from Woodrow and then struck Clark in the face with a gun, as Clark attempted to help his friend get his cellphone back, police say.

Both groups then separated, and the security guard and Garrett went back inside the club. After several minutes, the guard and Garrett went outside to the parking lot and allegedly confronted the two men again.

Garrett, without provocation, shot Clark first. He then shot at Woodrow as he attempted to run away, police say.

Clark was pronounced dead at the scene. Woodrow was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital in stable condition.

Garrett fled the scene in a maroon Ford Expedition, but was arrested July 3 by Missouri City police without incident.
