A man seeking drugs shot and killed another man on the southwest side Sunday evening.
The 26-year-old male victim, whose name has not been released pending verification (Update: HPD has identified him as Marcus Keith Mehundrew), was sitting in a garage with two other males about 7:25 p.m. Sunday when a man walked up and asked for drugs, Houston police say.
