A couple living at the Shadow Ridge Apartments at 5810 Fondren awoke from a peaceful sleep early Sunday morning to the loud boom of gunshots. They bolted upright and saw two men running out of their apartment, according to Houston police. The couple then got out of bed and began looking around their home. They found a dead man on the floor of their bathroom, riddled with gunshot wounds.
