Ronald Keith Foreman, 21, Bayou Body Count No. 129
A drug deal gone bad in the parking lot of the Marq-E entertainment complex resulted in the death of a 21-year-old man.
Houston police say Ronald Keith Foreman and Glenn Earl Hickman, 26, "met with two male suspects in the parking lot of the Marq-E Entertainment Center on the Katy Freeway service road to conduct a drug transaction," police said. "During the course of the transaction,
shots were fired and both Foreman and Hickman were struck multiple times."
Both were taken to Ben Taub; Foreman was pronounced dead but Hickman is in stable condition.
The incident happened at about 5 p.m. Wednesday, not exactly the time you'd expect a shootout in the Marq-E lot (if, that is, you ever do.)

That's one crowded vehicle.
No charges have been filed in the incident.
