HOUSTON -- Police investigated a fatal shooting outside a home along the Port of Houston early Thursday.

Houston Police Department Homicide Investigator Sgt. H.A. Chavez said a 911 call came in from Avenue F at 78th Street at 3:23 a.m.

Officers responded and found a shot male lying on the sidewalk in front of a home. The victim, who was in his 30s, died at the scene.

Witnesses told police the victim was arguing with another man earlier. The victim left but then returned and the argument turned into a physical struggle.

The suspect shot the man and then fled the scene, possibly in a Chrysler 300. A detailed description of the gunmen was not available.

Police said the victim lived down the street from where the shooting occurred.

Anyone with information can call HPD Homicide at 713-308-3600 or Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
