Unidentified Male, 29, Shot to Death While Watching a Girl Fight: Bayou Body Count No. 202
Filed under "what not to do when two women are duking it out," an unidentified male, 29, is dead after he was shot by an unknown black male in the courtyard of an apartment complex while standing in a crowd watching two women fight. Because nothing could ever possibly go wrong when a crowd of people gawks at two grown women kicking the crap out of one another.
The incident occurred on Friday, November 16, at 10 p.m. at 13502 Northborough on Houston's north side, the location of Sago Palms Apartments, where one commenter at ApartmentRatings.com said in September, "Ive ben a resident here for over a year and everything is great. There has ben no noise,no disturbances,good security,and excellent maintanence." Except for the catfight and shooting, obviously.
According to police, the victim was in the crowd when an unknown suspect pulled a gun and fired at him, hitting him at least once. He was flown to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where he died. No motive has been discovered as of yet and the two fighting women did not require medical attention.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
