Jaime Salazar, Bayou Body Count No. 168

A dispute with a bouncer at a Gulf Freeway nightclub ended in death, but any charges in the incident are in the hands of a Harris County grand jury.

Houston police say Jaime Salazar, no age given, was refusing to leave the El Antro nightclub in the 8100 block of the Gulf Freeway about 2:45 a.m. Monday and therefore got into a scuffle with the club's bouncer. He was with "several other males."

HPD takes it from there:

A security guard working at the club arrived and broke up the fight. As the employee and the security guard were walking back to the club, Salazar went back to his truck, got a pistol, and began firing towards the employee. The security guard returned fire with his weapon and struck Salazar. Salazar then jumped into his truck and, still firing his weapon, drove away. The security guard continued to fire his weapon and struck Salazar several times. Salazar then crashed his truck into a ditch and died at the scene.

A female passenger in the truck was hit by stray gunfire and was transported to Ben Taub Hospital with a knee injury, police said.
