Harris County Sheriff's Office deputies are trying to learn what led to a shooting overnight at an apartment complex.

According to officials, the man does not live in the complex and has not yet been identified.

Deputies believe the dead man may have tried to force his way into the apartment. They are questioning the man who lives there.

The shooting remains under investigation and it's not yet clear if anyone will face charges.
