A fight between party-goers ended with one man dead and another possibly facing criminal charges. Police were called out to a building on Hempstead Highway around 2am this morning and found a man dead in the parking lot. Investigators say two men may have been intoxicated when they started fighting.

One man reportedly hit the other with the butt of a rifle, killing him. Police say he is cooperating with investigators.

It is up to the Harris County district attorney to decide whether to file charges.
