A 21-year-old man began acting bizarrely and then died after taking drugs at what police call "a rave party" early Saturday morning.
Kevin Schoolmeyer was driving home to Friendswood with a friend about 6 a.m. Saturday when he began acting strangely, police say.
As they were driving through the Denver Harbor neighborhood, police say, "Schoolmeyer became enraged and erratic, pulled over to park on the side of the road, and ordered the witness to get out of the vehicle. The witness walked away, then returned a short time later and found Schoolmeyer unresponsive."
HPD says Schoolmeyer "had taken an unknown quantity of narcotics" at the party in a downtown club.
An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death. Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600.
