A man was shot to death on the east side Wednesday night during an argument, police say.
Micheal M. McClain, 21, was shot in an apartment in the 600 block of Maxey Road about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday. Police say he had been visiting the apartment with two other males when an altercation began.
"McClain opened the door to the apartment and then returned inside," HPD says. "Witnesses then reported hearing a gunshot and saw McClain run from the apartment to the courtyard of the apartment complex."
The two men fled; McClain was taken to Ben Taub where he was pronounced dead.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
