HOUSTON – Houston police are investigating after a man was found shot to death near Texas Southern University Tuesday.

Officers responded to reports of a shooting in the 2800 block of Blodgett around 7:30 p.m. and found a man fatally shot.

Lt. Larry Crowson said the victim had an ongoing dispute of some sort with the suspect. The two got into an argument in front of an apartment building and the suspect shot the victim.

The suspect remained at the scene and has been detained. Crowson said once the investigation is complete, police would contact the district attorney’s office to see if there will be any charges or if the case might be referred to a grand jury.

Crowson said he did not know what the dispute was about.
