HOUSTON Houston police say a deadly home invasion in southeast Houston on Saturday morning may have been the result of a drug deal gone bad.

Just after 6 a.m., three men stormed into an apartment in the 7100 block of Lawndale and shot a man and his dog, police said. The man, Ascehsion Garcia, 31, died at the scene. A friend of the victim said the dog died later.

Police said that the three suspects connected to the shooting are still on the run.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
