One man is dead and a second in the hospital following a shootout in east Houston. Police say a fight broke out between a group of people on Laurentide early Sunday morning. The driver of a black SUV started shooting, and someone in the crowd fired back. The man in the SUV drove three blocks before he collapsed and died.

It's unclear whether the injured victim was the other shooter or someone caught in the gunfire.

Police ask anyone with information about this crime to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS or log on to Crime-Stoppers.org.
