Two men were shot early this morning as they sat in a car in front of a far westside apartment complex, police say; they managed to drive away and call 911 but one died and the other is hospitalized with gun wounds.
HPD has not released the name of either victim involved in the incident that happened about 4:30 a.m. this morning. The deceased male's identity is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences, HPD says..
The two had been sitting in a car in front of the Aspen Ridge apartment complex at 10555 Spice Lane "when they were approached and confronted for unknown reasons by two unknown black male suspects," HPD says.
The driver drove a few blocks to a Wells Fargo branch near the Sam Houston Tollway and Beechnut.
