One man is dead and his brother is in the hospital in what's being called the first homicide of 2010. Police say the brothers tried to help out another man during a fight at an apartment complex on Marlive near the South Loop around 1am. That's when one man started shooting, hitting the two brothers.

Authorities have identified a person of interest in the case. They say his first name is Leandra.

"The challenging part of this investigation is locating Leandra so we can find out what happened and also trying to find proper identification on even the victims," said Sgt. Brian Harris with the Houston Police Department.

The victim is in critical condition at the hospital.
