HOUSTON – Police Thursday night were investigating a fatal shooting and a wreck involving three vehicles in far south Houston.

According to the Houston Police Department, it was around 8:30 p.m. when officers responded to the shooting and found a man dead inside a pickup truck.

Investigators said it appeared the man was shot by his passenger, who then fled the scene on foot.

Because the truck was in gear when the shooting occurred, it drove through a fence and hit two parked cars before coming to a stop in the front yard of a home.

Police said the motive for the shooting was unknown, and a detailed suspect description was not available.
