HOUSTON – A man remains on the run after Houston police said he shot and killed another man and wounded two women during an argument that took place outside a north Houston apartment complex early Sunday.

Police said Reginald Torres, 20, is charged with murder in the death of the 22-year-old victim.

Lt. E. Pavel with HPD said it happened in the 4000 block of Irvington Boulevard at around midnight. Pavel said officers were flagged down by witnesses about a shooting at the complex.

Police said the 22-year-old victim and two women were drinking in the parking lot when at some point they were approached by the suspect.

An argument ensued between the two victims and the suspect, and that is when, police said, the suspect pulled out a gun and shot all three of them. The man was shot twice.

All three of the victims were taken to an area hospital where the 22-year-old later died. The two women, both 18 and 20 years old, were treated at the hospital and released.

Torres left the scene on foot and is not in custody at this time.

Investigators believe Torres and the three victims may know one another.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Reginald Torres is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or speak anonymously with Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
