At approximately 6:25 a.m., deputies with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to an apartment complex in the 2300 block of Bammelwood Dr. in reference to reports of a shooting.

When deputies arrived on the scene, they found a Black 27-year-old male with at least one gunshot wound dead inside an apartment.

They also found the man’s girlfriend at the scene. She told deputies he assaulted her. During the assault, the pair began fighting over a gun and the gun discharged and fatally struck the man in the upper torso, Sgt. D Wolfford said during a media briefing on the incident.
