Two people were fatally shot in a club early Christmas morning near the Heights.
The shooting happened around 2:15 a.m. at the Nox dance club on Nett near Shepherd.
Police said as the club was letting out patrons, Patrick Prince and Brian Washington, 30, started a heated argument. Prince allegedly then took out a pistol and shot several times at Washington, who returned fire once at Prince.
Washington died at the scene. Prince was transported to Ben Taub Hospital, where he died an hour later. Both of their guns were taken by unknown suspects, whom homicide detectives are trying to locate.
Police say a third person was injured.
“Two men are dead, a third had a slight wound. We are detaining him and speaking to him at homicide,” HPD Sgt. Peg Jewell said.
