HOUSTON - A shooting at an afterhours night club in southwest Houston left one man dead early Tuesday, police said.

Strangers stepped in to try and save the victim.

I mean I was inside the club and then I saw everybody rushing out, said Rudy Castellanos. When I got out here my girlfriend and friends were trying to resuscitate him, bring him back to life, but they just did what they could.

Homicide detectives arrived at the scene to investigate the shooting.

The victim s identity was not immediately released.
