HPD says the suspect demanded some keys before shooting the man in the chest.

HOUSTON — A man was shot and killed following a confrontation for some keys in the Montrose area, according to the Houston Police Department.

The shooting happened Thursday night on Marshall St. near the University of St. Thomas.

Police said a man and woman were doing some welding outside before going inside the apartment to cool off.

A suspect then went inside the apartment and requested keys from the woman. The woman told the suspect she had no keys. Police said that's when the suspect showed her a gun and fired a warning shot.

The man went to confront the suspect, which led to the suspect shooting him once in the chest and leaving the scene.

The man, who is a maintenance worker at the complex, was transported to the hospital before being pronounced dead.

Police said they were unsure if the suspect lives at the complex because of conflicting statements from witnesses.

Any investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
