Karaoke Murder: Unidentified Male, Bayou Body Count No. 21

Be careful what you sing: A man was shot to death in southwest Houston early this morning because, police say, of a dispute over his karaoke choice.

The unidentified male sang at Ostioneria Mazatlan in the 6400 block of Hillcroft around 2:30 a.m. and then got into an argument with another group at the taqueria.

Things got violent, and the man was shot, with the group leaving in two separate vehicles, a red Chevrolet pickup truck and a green Nissan Pathfinder.

It is not known what song set off the incident.

Anyone with information on the suspects' identities is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
