A barroom dispute out by the refineries ended with one man dead late Friday, police say.

Javier Tufino Belmont was found dead in the Michoacan Night Club in southeast Houston after being shot. Police said no motive for the shooting was known.

The suspected shooter has got a tattoo that might help identification. Here's the police description:

[A] Hispanic male, 25 to 30 years of age, 5 feet 6 inches tall, 140 pounds and with a dark complexion. He was wearing a white muscle shirt, faded blue jeans and a white ball cap. He has a black rosary tattoo around his neck and the name "Marcos" tattooed on his upper right arm.

The incident occurred about 10:30 Friday night, police say.

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.
