HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Police are investigating after a man was found shot to death in the driver's seat of a truck Saturday morning.

Authorities responded to the deadly shooting on Collingsworth near Chapman around 2:45 a.m.

A second man was also found shot near the same truck. He was transported to the hospital in critical condition.



The man who was killed was identified by his family as 54-year-old Jose Jorge Lopez.
