Houston police are looking for a man they say shot another man who was trying to break up a fight in southeast Houston. The two men were inside an apartment at the Belvedere apartment complex on Winkler at around 11:30pm Saturday when two women started fighting there. Police say the victim was attempting to stop the fight.

"It escalated to the point where one of the males brandished a weapon and fired between one and three shots, striking the victim once in the chest where he died at the scene," said Sgt. T.D. Griffin with the Houston Police Department homicide division.

Police are interviewing witnesses and only have a nickname of the suspect right now.
