HOUSTON – One man is dead after deputies said he was shot by the jealous ex-husband of his girlfriend Sunday in northwest Harris County.
It happened around 12:30 p.m. outside of a home in the 17000 block of Glen Haden Drive.
According to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, the ex-husband was coming over to the house to pick up the kids. Witnesses tell KHOU 11 News that a fight broke out and the ex-husband pulled a gun and shot the boyfriend.
Neighbors stepped in to help.
"I did what I could, I tried to stop him from bleeding and everything," said Deandre Christal. "It was me and some other guys helping him, we just tied some stuff around him to try and stop the bleeding because it wasn't looking too good."
Despite their efforts, the victim did not survive. He was airlifted to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where he later died.
The husband was taken into custody. He has six children with his ex-wife.
