HOUSTON (KIAH) — A man is dead in what may have been an attempted robbery in north Houston.

Police say a group of men were standing outside of a Shell gas station at 647 Greens Road a little after midnight when a man wearing a ski mask walked up to them and pulled out a gun, attempting to rob him.

One of the men then pulled out his own weapon and shot the man multiple times, police said. The person who was shot fled the scene and was taken to a hospital by a private vehicle, but later died at the hospital.

The shooter stayed on the scene and spoke with an HPD detective about the incident.

HPD later said that the case will be referred to a Harris County grand jury.
