Police responding to an assault call in northwest Houston stumbled upon a shooting scene.Detectives tell us the officers were at the Fallbrook apartments on Plaza Verde checking on a possible assault case when they heard gunshots. They came around the corner, and saw a car speeding away.

Police found a man lying in the parking lot, suffering from several gunshot wounds. An officer chased the suspect's car to the North Freeway at Northpoint. That's when the two men inside jumped out, and ran away.

HPD's M. Khan said, "Officers located one possible suspect. We're in the process of interviewing him right now."
