HOUSTON (CBS Houston) According to authorities, it is unclear why a man may have shot three people overnight before barricading himself in an apartment located on Houston’s northwest side.

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.

As police continued their investigation of the case, the shooting suspect was found at an apartment located on Blalock and was later apprehended.

The suspect did not surrender peacefully at first. It took a negotiator a couple of hours to get the man to surrender, but he finally came out of the home around 3 a.m. A motive for the shootings was not determined; police continue their investigation into the case.
