HOUSTON, TX – A not so happy birthday in north west Harris County after a man was shot and killed during a party.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office was called to a home near McCharen and Duckett Park around 2:45 am Sunday morning.

Sergeant Felipe Rivera, a homicide investigator with Harris County, said people were at the house for a party for an adult and a child when the suspect and the victim got into an argument.

“The suspect produced a handgun, fired it at the victim striking him once (then) fled the scene.”  said Rivera.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Another man was also grazed by a bullet, but officials said he was taken to the hospital where he was treated and released.

All three men involved are described as Hispanic males in their 30’s.

The suspect is known, and officials are now just trying to track him down.
