A man was shot to death on the northeast side Friday night, and a Harris County grand jury will determine if there will be any charges in the incident.

Darrin Doucet, 21, was visiting a friend in the 10500 block of Kelburn about 8:30 p.m. Friday, Houston police say.

"The two began arguing about a previous, ongoing disagreement," HPD says. "At some point, shots were fired and a third person, a suspect, left the location to call emergency personnel. Doucet's friend also called for paramedics. Paramedics arrived and pronounced Doucet deceased."

Police say that "due to conflicting statements regarding who initially had the weapon and who initiated the confrontation," the grand jury will decide what to do with the case.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
