Jeff Ehling reports from the scene of a deadly shooting in Houston

Deandre Edwards, 27, was shot in the back and in the leg.

Police say when they got here they found the victim in the park. The man was taken to Ben Taub Hospital where he died.

Investigators say Edwards was actually running away from the gunman when he was shot.

Even though there were dozens of people out here, police say they do not have a lot of information about who pulled the trigger or what the fight was over.

"Initial indications are that there was a basketball game going on in the park, several shots were fired and he had been shot," says HPD Night Commander Larry Crowson.

If you have any information about the shooting, you urged to call Houston Police.
