The incident happened around midnight Wednesday when officers with the Houston Police Department were called to an apartment residence located on Jim Street about a block west of Highway 290. Upon arrival, they found a man dead from a gunshot wound outside a home.

Later Wednesday morning, police arrived at a another shooting scene that was reported nearby at Kempwood Drive and Wirt Road. The additional shooting scene involved two other individuals and it is believed to be connected to authorities’ findings at the first scene. The statuses of the two people was not released at the time of this report.
