HOUSTON (AP) — Police have charged a 22-year-old man with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon following a downtown gunfight in which one was killed.

Authorities say Cordarrel Sharod McGee is hospitalized Monday for treatment of gunshot wounds. They allege he was with three or four other men when they confronted a 27-year-old man returning home from a nightclub early Saturday in Houston.

The resident told police the men began firing at him and he returned fire with his own weapon. The resident shot and killed a 23-year-old man whose name has not been released, and also wounded McGee. The resident also suffered a gunshot wound.

Houston police say McGee was placed in custody after being taken to a hospital by private vehicle.

Online jail records did not indicate an attorney for McGee.
