Unidentified Male, 24, Bayou Body Count No. 267

A fight outside a southwest side restaurant left one man dead early Saturday, police say.

Cops responded to a call of shots fired in the 7600 block of Dashwood about 2:40 a.m. Satruday and found a male victim dead at the scene. His identity is being withheld pending notification of family members.

HPD says witnesses say the victim was involved in an altercation with "three to four unknown suspects" outside the El Catrachito Restaurant. One of the suspects shot the victim, and all escaped in an unkown vehicle.

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.
