An attempted robbery just outside of downtown Houston erupted into a gunfight that left one suspect dead and the victim injured, police say.

The shooting happened around 6:30am in the 2900 block of Pease.

Police say a man coming home from a club was confronted by as many as five suspects. When the suspects tried to rob him, a shootout erupted.

One of the suspects was killed and the victim was transported to a hospital to be treated for a gunshot wound. Police say he's since been released from the hospital.

Police believe another suspect also was injured in the gunfight and say they have a person of interest at another hospital.

No other details were immediately available.
