An argument at a Telephone Road bar turned fatal early this morning.

Sergio Luis Lima, 30, of Pasadena, was shot and pronounced dead at the scene after a car full of men fired into a bar in the 4600 blockk of Telephone Road following an argument about 3:50 a.m. today.

Police say four Hispanic males had been involved in a fight with other patrons at the bar.

"Security personnel removed the four males, who then left the scene," HPD says. "A short time later, a vehicle matching that of the suspects' returned. One or more suspects in the car then fired shots in the direction of the bar, fatally striking Lima."

Lima's body was found in the parking lot.

The suspects are described only as four Hispanic males in their early 20s. Police say their vehicle is believed to be a white Chrysler 300 with paper tags H118258.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
