You really expect don't much in the way of murder in the area of West U, but that's what happened early Sunday morning, police said.

They offered few details, however, on the incident that occurred at The Village at West University apartment complex at Edloe and Westpark.

The luxury apartments in the 5100 block of Edloe were the scene of the fatal shooting, which happened shortly after midnight Sunday.

KTRK reported that a tenant and a guest got in an argument over a card game, and the tenant shot and killed the guest.

The tenant tried to drive off, KTRK said, but did not get far before police captured him.

Update: The victim has been identified and a suspect arrested, police say.

Willam Edward Hernandez, 22, has been charged with the murder of Anthony Holton, 23, of Cypress.
