A man is fighting for his life after an argument between him and four other men ended in a shooting outside of a northwest Houston store, police say.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A man is dead after he was shot during an argument with a group of people outside of a convenience store in northwest Houston, police said.

Thursday afternoon, the victim pulled up in a car to a convenience store in the 8100 block of W. Tidwell and exchanged words with people who were hanging outside. At some point, the suspect fired his weapon, and the victim was shot two times.

Police said the victim was in critical condition and rushed into surgery, but in a later update, they said he died at the hospital.

While the suspect fled the scene, police said he returned and surrendered to officers.

It's unclear what the argument was over or if the victim and the group of men outside the store knew each other.

Police said they are still working on gathering more information.
