HOUSTON – A man was shot several times in the abdomen after an argument took place outside of a food truck in southwest Houston early Sunday morning, Houston police said.

It happened around 2:20 a.m. in front of the Cluth City Cluckers food truck located in a gas station parking lot in the 9500 block of Main Street near Buffalo Speedway.

According to Lt. I. Izaguirre with the Houston Police Department, the victim was in line at the food truck and stood behind the victim and a woman.

At some point, the victim reportedly began talking to the woman, however, police said some sort of a disagreement may have occurred between him and the suspect.

Later, the suspect reportedly got out of line and walked to his white-colored SUV to grab his gun.

That was when, police said, he fired at the victim several times in the stomach.

The injured victim was taken to an area hospital where he is expected to survive his injuries.

Both the suspect and the woman, whose relationship is not known at this time, fled the scene in the SUV.

Investigators said the suspect is believed to be in his late 20s.

Police have obtained surveillance video as part of their investigation, which is ongoing at this time.
