Deputies with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office were called to the Bombshells restaurant and bar at 13732 East Freeway around 11:45 p.m. Monday. They discovered the victim, a Hispanic man, with multiple gunshots. He was declared dead at the scene.
Investigators discovered the victim was having a verbal altercation with another 23-year-old man, when the man pulled out a pistol and shot the victim two to three times before leaving the scene on foot.
Deputies said that the suspect is known to them and at least one to two people in the not-so-crowded restaurant know him as well.
Later that morning, deputies said the suspect, identified as Pedro Zavala, called the sheriff’s office and asked to surrender to deputies. They located him a mile and a half away from the scene of the shooting.
Zavala was arrested and charged with murder. He is currently in the Harris County Jail.
