HOUSTON –- Houston police are looking for a man they say shot two people following an argument at a Little Caesar’s restaurant on the southeast side.

The shooting happened around 9 p.m. Wednesday, according to officers with the Houston Police Department.

Witnesses said the shooter works at the Little Caesar’s on Broadway where he allegedly got into an argument with two customers over a pizza. The fight later carried over to the nearby Las Villas apartments.

Police said the worker pulled out a gun and shot one of the victims twice in the back and once in the chest. He was sent to the hospital in serious condition but was expected to live.

The other victim was grazed by a bullet and was not seriously wounded.

Police said the gunman fled the scene, but they know his identity.
