Houston police say a man who was fatally shot last night on the east side of the city knew his killer.

The shooting happened around 8pm in an apartment complex parking lot on Fair Oaks at Brookside.

According to police, the 19-year-old victim and his alleged killer had been arguing for months. The details of their dispute were unclear, but it all came to a head last night.

Authorities said the men were arguing at a gas station before the alleged shooter reportedly followed the victim back to the apartment complex.

"Apparently they started an argument at a gas station. Not sure what happened at the gas station," LaTonya Bailey with HPD Homicide said. "It ended here with gunfire."

A woman was with the victim at the time of the shooting. She was not injured.

Police have not released a description of the suspect, but say they are looking for a white Toyota Corolla sedan.
