HOUSTON –  Houston police are investigating a shooting that left one man dead and a woman wounded Tuesday in west Houston.

It happened at The Palms on Westheimer at about 11:30 a.m.

Police said they got a call about a woman who had been shot in the leg.

Sources said the woman may have been limping around the complex with a pit bull, and she told someone that the same person who shot her also killed a guy inside an apartment.

The woman went to the hospital.

Police came out to investigate and found a man dead inside a unit in Building 18.

A man who lives above the crime scene said he didn’t hear anything and that he never hears of any trouble.

“It’s typically quiet. People stay to themselves, but it’s real nice. That’s why this is shocking,” said Maurice Chapman.
