A get-together between friends turned deadly when a man was shot in northwest Houston overnight, according to police.

Houston police responded to a shooting call at a home in the 4300 block of Spring Valley Drive at 12:20 a.m. Tuesday.

Investigators said several people were inside the home when the suspect allegedly pulled out a gun and shot his friend in the chest.

Family members tried to perform CPR, but the 41-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Witnesses told police they have no idea why the suspect shot his friend.

“It’s pretty puzzling talking about it, as far as a reason why. They describe the evening being regular, nobody arguing, nobody fighting, and all of a sudden, the suspect produced a firearm, striking the complainant, who was his friend,” Lt. J.P. Horelica said.

The suspect took off after the shooting, but HPD said they know who they are looking for. He was last seen driving a blue Toyota Celica with a black hood.

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