HOUSTON -- Someone shot a security guard during an altercation outside a Galleria-area apartment complex, Houston police said early Thursday.

It happened around 1:30 a.m. at The Palms on Westheimer near Winrock.

A guard was found with one gunshot wound to his leg. He was sent to Ben Taub Hospital in stable condition.

Residents said the guard has worked at the apartments for a long time.

He reportedly was in the parking lot when some kind of disturbance occurred with a tall thin man who was seen running away after the shooting.

The suspect reportedly fired three times, shooting the guard once.
