Houston crime: Man shot dead and girlfriend injured when he exchanged gunfire with suspect in apartment parking lot, police say

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — A man was shot dead and his girlfriend injured when they exchanged gunfire with another man in the parking lot of an apartment complex in southwest Houston, police said.

At approximately 3:45 p.m. Thursday, officers responded to a call to shoot at Block 9900 of the Buffalo Speedway. Officers determined that one man had been shot and was pronounced dead at the scene. They also found an injured woman. She was taken to a nearby hospital in stable condition, police said.

The shooting erupted when the victim was walking to the apartment’s parking lot and saw a man near his car. Because his car had been broken into before, the victim confronted the man and things escalated when they both drew guns and shot at each other.

The victim’s girlfriend also ran to the parking lot, had her own gun and also exchanged shots with the suspect.

Whether the suspect attempted to break into the victim’s vehicle is unclear, police said.

Police added that they are looking for the gunman who left the scene. You are now looking for surveillance video to get a better description of the vehicle.
