HOUSTON – A man is shot and killed outside a northwest Houston apartment complex after Houston police said he was involved in an argument with another man that possibly involved a drug deal.
According to HPD Commander C. Johnson, it happened in the Summercrest Apartments located in the 3900 block of Hollister Road Friday night.
At around 9:42 p.m., Johnson said the victim, who appeared to be in his early 20s, was involved in an argument with another man.
At some point, Johnson said the suspect pulled out a weapon and began a brief foot chase with the victim. He then allegedly fired multiple gunshots, striking him.
The victim died at the scene after suffering a gunshot wound to the upper left side of his body, police said.
Investigators believe both men were possibly involved in a drug deal.
Johnson said a person of interest was taken into custody after a short foot chase, but no charges have been filed involving the shooting. A gun and several pieces of evidence were recovered at the scene, investigators said.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or speak anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
