Officers said they responded to reports of a shooting around 10:30 p.m. in the 720 blocks of N. Sam Houston Parkway East. Investigators said when officers arrived at the scene, they found a man dead with gunshot wounds.
According to police, two men were walking to or from a gas station on the sidewalk when an altercation occurred. One of the men then shot the other and fled on foot in a westbound direction, officers said. Police said the suspect has not been found.
Investigators said the relationship between the two men is unknown at this time.
“We’re trying to get a grip on what’s going on,” Lt. Jimmy Dodson said. “Sending more detectives to the homicide division, more patrol officers on the streets to keep residents safe. Everything is up.”
