Omar Alexander Quiroz, 20, was charged and booked on Tuesday for Monday’s deadly shooting at an apartment complex at 6425 Bankside Drive.
Houston police officers and paramedics were called to the apartment around 3 p.m. and found the 30-year-old victim, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
Quiroz, who was identified as the shooter, left the scene, but returned and turned himself in to police.
Further investigation and witness statements discovered that Quiroz and the victim lived together and the victim was dating Quiroz’s mother, police said.
