HOUSTON - A suspect is on the run this morning after killing a man in southwest Houston.

It happened Thursday night at an apartment complex off Beechnut and Wilcrest. Police say some sort of fight happened inside a second floor apartment between the suspect and a man and woman who live there.

At some point, the suspect shot the two residents.

The man died at the scene and the woman was taken to the hospital in stable condition. After shooting them, the suspect grabbed their car keys and took off.

Police are talking to another woman who was inside the apartment at the time. Officers say the suspect was an acquaintance the couple had just met a few days ago.
