It sounds like something out of a Scorsese movie -- a gunshot in a parked car, two people get out and leave, one dead body remains.
That's what happened about 11 p.m. Tuesday at the Kingswood Apartments in the 3200 block of Mangum, police say.
Witnesses said two Hispanic males were seen running from the scene into the interior of the apartment complex, although other witnesses said three Hispanic males "fled the scene in a
black Chevrolet Monte Carlo shortly after the shooting."
The name of the victim is being withheld pending notification of relatives.
Anyone with information on this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
